Curriculum Content Overview

The aim of our curriculum is to enthuse and engage students through a range of teaching styles, practical work and learning activities so they can make excellent progress in this subject. The curriculum is designed to build on prior learning, spiralling to reinforce key concepts and threshold concepts to support the learning of our students. Practical work is an essential part of the subject, not only to develop skills, but to encourage the asking of questions that can be answered by investigation. 

The chemistry curriculum aims to strengthen and support students’ science learning from KS2, through KS3 and then offers a choice of Combined Science GCSE or Chemistry GCSE at KS4. A Level Chemistry is offered at KS5. For examinations in both KS4 and KS5, we follow the AQA specifications.
