The science department has strong evidence that a long term, systematic revision programme can make enormous improvements in a student's chances of succeeding in examinations. Revision is on the following evenings in the Science block between 15.00 and 16.00.

  • Monday and Wednesday after school 

Please check INSIGHT for additional sessions and details about revision guides. 

Year 12 Work Experience (July 2014) For work experience a year 12 student worked with and shadowed a consulting chemical engineer of CNG Services. They are the world leaders in bio-methane to grid technology and project manage AD (anaerobic digester) based plants. Please click to open his report.

Cell Models (2018)

This year some year 7 classes have been busy making cell models for their Science homework. They have been very creative and we have had designs made from all sorts of different materials from cardboard and plastic tubs to a pillow.  A couple of students even made a model cell from cake and icing. The standard really has been high and all students agreed they enjoyed making them.   Mrs Bartonshaw was  really impressed that some students used A level terms on their work.   

Chester Zoo (July 2018)

For enrichment day year 7 went to Chester Zoo. They had a great time. They also learnt lots about endangered animals, animals adaptations and much more.

Parent engagement evening (March 2018)

Well done to all students and parents who took part in the GCSE Science intervention evening.  In total over 40 students and their parents came to the to learn about various aspects of  the GCSE Science course.  Parents were very keen to get involved and ask questions.  Parents and students then used revision material to revise topics from Biology, Chemistry and Physics and then applied their knowledge to examination questions.  All Science staff were impressed with just how hard the parents and students worked. Parents also said how useful the evenings was. Thanks to all that attended!
