Science Year 8

Students follow a two-year programme of study, encouraging an enquiry based approach to science which fully allows student to develop their skills in thinking and communicating scientifically as well as using investigative approaches and working critically with evidence.  Practical investigations are a core feature of the programme and make science exciting and relevant. Units in Year 8 are delivered in modules.  We use the 'Activate' scheme of work.
