We currently offer AQA Dual Award Science. This is a 2 year course made up of two separate Science GCSEs. One is Core Science which is completed in year 10 and the other is Additional Science which is completed in year 11. Each GCSE has three external examinations worth 75% of the overall qualification and one internally assessed piece of controlled assessment. Each course compromises of a unit of Biology, Chemistry and Physics and includes work in the following topic areas:
