Greenshaw High School

Science

All students in the school study science from Years 7 through to Year 11. In Years 7 to 8, students cover big ideas in science that help students understand key scientific ideas and skills.

At Key Stage 4, all students complete combined science or triple science:

  • Combined Science (compulsory, unless studying Triple Science)
  • Triple Science (Chemistry, Biology, Physics)

At post-16, students can choose to follow either A level Biology, A level Chemistry or A level Physics.

In all years, students have the opportunity to learn through a variety of methods, whether this be class presentations, practical experiments or class discussions.

Resources to help with classwork, extended work or coursework, can be found on Frog.
