Science

An understanding of Science is fundamental to a person's success in our modern technological society. At Castle School we provide all the students with a challenging and exciting curriculum aimed at stimulating curiosity and developing enquiring minds.

We aim to cater for all abilities and wherever possible tailor a specific program of study to meet an individual pupils needs.

Throughout KS3 students follow a balanced science course in line with the National curriculum but focusing strongly on scientific enquiry and learning through practical activities. We have close links with the Darwin Centre and look to promote learning outside the classroom whenever possible.

Above all we strive to ensure that every pupil leaves Castle School with the necessary qualifications to enable them to progress on the next steps in their lives, and that they leave with a lasting appreciation of how scientific understanding has shaped the world in which we live.

Castle School teaches the skills and range included in the National Curriculum. At Key Stage 4 we follow WJEC Core, Additional or Seperate Science GCSEs allowing pupils the opportunity for 1,2 or 3 Science GCSEs.

We also deliver an OCR Entry Level course.
