Just as in Key Stage 3, all Key Stage 4 students have their own login to the Kerboodle textbook and to some of the resources used in lessons. Students experience a wide range of practical work, including the required practical’s which are assessed in the GCSE exams at the end of Year 11.

All Key Stage 4 Science courses are taught in 9 X 1 hour lessons over the 2 week timetable.
