At Long Field Academy, our Science department are passionate about their subject and work tirelessly to impart their expertise onto students with a constant focus on preparing them for GCSE, A-level and beyond. KS3 students will study a rotation of Biology, Chemistry and Physics units for two hours a week. They will also have one hour per week focussing on improving their scientific skills, promoting curiosity and their enjoyment of the subject. At KS4, all students take separate sciences (Biology, Chemistry and Physics) as this gives them a thorough understanding of key scientific principles, enabling them to study further science at KS5 and University. Throughout the Science curriculum, we have a focus on ensuring that all students develop a love of learning, the ability to ask important questions and devise a plan to help solve problems. Built into the curriculum are regular opportunities for students to retrieve previous knowledge and make links both between KS3 and KS4 topics, as well as within the KS4 curriculum. In the Science department, we strongly believe that a comprehensive understanding of the principle underpinnings of Science, will help to solve the problems the world faces and provide the scientists of tomorrow.
