Welcome to Science

Science is the concerted human effort to understand, or to understand better, the history of the natural world and how the natural world works.

At Djanogly we strive to deliver a high-quality science education that provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity, and all pupils should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science.

Key Stage 3

Through years 7 and 8 pupils build up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts and are encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about the world from a scientific perspective.

Key Stage 4

Students are then encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes at a more advanced level as they move through years 9, 10 and 11. Pupils at this level follow either a double or triple award GCSE science curriculum as part of their core studies.

Homework

All students are set homework and the time spent on homework will increase as students progress through the Key Stages in line with school expectations.

Resources

The Science department has access to a wide range of specialist labs and teaching spaces across the academy site. We also have access to computer facilities to allow our students to complete key controlled assessment tasks. We have the capability to conduct the full range of experiments and have technicians that support our specialist teaching team.
