Head of Faculty - Mrs H Davis
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 Combined Science course will gain 2 GCSEs. 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 and follow the OCR exam board. 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.
Year 12 Physicists were busy this afternoon measuring 'g'. I wonder which method will bring them closest to the accepted value? Fantastic work everyone https://t.co/dyzwrwefeO
