Year 9

Year 9 is a very exciting time for students; they complete Key Stage 3 and start their GCSE Science course. We currently follow OCR 21st Century Science which allows student to recognise the impact Science and technology has on everyday life. Students develop many new scientific skills like how to handle and display data collected from their own experiments and judge secondary data for its reliability.

The different topics covered in Year 9 are listed below.

Key Stage 3 Topics

  •       Genetics
  •       Plants
  •       Chemical reactions
  •       Physics in our worlds
  •       Speed

GCSE Topics

  •      B1 You and Your Genes
  •      C1 Air Quality
  •      P1 The Earth and Universe
