The Science department has a proven track record in offering a high quality curriculum which matches the needs of our pupils. We are very proud of our record in the Separate Sciences with many pupils going to study Science in Further Education. Our lessons are stimulating and relevant to everyday experiences using the TEEP framework.
- To show how Science impacts on our everyday life in a stimulating and exciting way.

We follow the new QCA Scheme of Work at KS3 in a condensed version over two and a half years. The Scheme fully encompasses the School’s TEEP framework.

We offer AQA Triple Science to our most able students as a compulsory subject. This far exceeds Government targets for students to study Triple Science with around 40% uptake compared to 25% nationally. Other pupils study the Science A and Additional Science GCSEs.

OTHER DEPARTMENTAL INFORMATION.
We now offer GCSE Astronomy as an option with 17 pupils currently in Year 10 starting the course. We have links with Sir John Moores University in Liverpool where pupils have accounts in order to access the National Schools Observatory in Tenerife. We have just received the first pictures back from the Moon. We also have a live twitter feed @mhsspace in which pupils can follow all the latest news from NASA and ESA to supplement their learning. The PTFA fully funded a remote control telescope in order for the pupils to complete their Astronomy coursework.
