Science

Head of Faculty - Mr. P. McDermott

The Science Faculty at St Martin’s is committed to making science interesting and relevant to all pupils. At Key Stage 3 we offer a modern, practical based curriculum which is taught to Years 7 and 8. The course prepares pupils for their end of Key Stage Assessment.

At Key Stage 4 we follow the AQA GCSE exam board Double Science or Separate Science course. Pupils studying the Double Science course will gain 2 GCSEs in Core Science and Additional Science. Those studying the Separate Science course will gain three GCSEs in biology, chemistry and physics.

At Key Stage 5 we offer A levels in each of the 3 sciences. These courses are designed to encourage a deeper understanding of the sciences. Many students who study these courses go onto to study science related courses at University.
