Combined Science: Trilogy

Core subject AQA 

_0012_SciencePupils study the science course over Y9, 10 an 11. At the end of the course they receive 2 GCSE grades from 1 to 9. 

Our philosophy: Science for all!

We believe that science has something to offer every student, whatever their aspirations. 

From trainee chef to nuclear physicist, construction apprentice to cancer researcher, everyone needs some level of relevant Science understanding.

Practical is at the heart of science

There's no better way to learn about Science than through purposeful practical activities that form a natural part of day to day teaching and learning. The new science GCSE has a series of investigations that pupils can be questioned about in the final exam. Pupils will keep a log of all their investigative work in their investigative workbook.
