Within KS5, pupils in Chemistry, Biology and Physics complete the AQA curriculum. All courses are taught by subject specialists and are delivered in 4/5 lessons per week, depending on class size. In years 12 and 13 there are 12 required practicals to cover in lessons, each of which assesses different skills. At the end of the 2 years, pupils will complete a linear exam and be awarded with a pass or fail for their required practical content.
