Science

Science is the pursuit and application of knowledge and understanding of the natural and social world following a systematic methodology based on evidence. Science aims to educate young people on the world around them, help them to understand the role of science in society and to develop both confidence and knowledge as well as aquiring skills in planning and carrying out research and practical investigations.

GCSE study in the sciences provides the foundation for understanding the material world.
Scientific understanding is changing our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity. All students should learn essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. They should gain appreciation of how the complex and diverse phenomena of the natural world can be described i in terms of a small number of key ideas that relate to the sciences and that are both inter-linked and of universal application.
