Overview of subject

At Sir Thomas Boteler Church of England High School we offer an exciting and interesting curriculum of study for Science at Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4. Science is the perfect subject to complement a learner’s natural curiosity; it is practical, relevant and learners embrace it.

Studying Science can open up a world of employment possibilities from Medicine to Veterinary science; Forensic Scientist to Nursing; Archaeology to Midwifery.

The benefits of learning about Science are vast. The students improve their enquiry, practical, questioning and observation skills. They also have to think and work independently on Science investigations. We offer a well-structured Key 3 curriculum integrating aspects of Biology, Chemistry and Physics. This continues into Key Stage 4 where our students have the opportunity to gain a minimum of two GSCEs in Core Science and Additional Science and three GCSEs if they are studying the Triple Science course. We study OCR Gateway B Core Science, Additional Science, Biology, Chemistry and Physics GCSE.
