Science Key Stage 4 Yr 11

Key Stage 4

Science matters. That’s why we’ve built the most inclusive GCSE (9–1) courses, so every

student can enjoy science and succeed in their studies.

After February half term Year 9 pupils will begin their Key Stage 4 Science course. During science lessons in Year 9 and 10, students are provided with a taste of all of these aspects of science, whatever course they are studying. Students learn in a variety of ways including debate, practical investigations, presentations and role play. The science qualifications on offer at Blackfen School for Girls enable students to engage with science and understand scientific issues that affect society.  

 

This new GCSE course will give students a qualification which is graded 9 (being the highest) to 1 (being the lowest).

 

Qualification type: GCSE    

Specification title: Combined Science (1SC0), Biology (1BI0), Chemistry (1CH0), Physics (1PH0)

Exam board: Edexcel   Course type: Full Course
