All students will be taught by well-qualified and experienced teachers who are experts in their fields. Lessons take lace in our £1m refurbished laboratories and classrooms in our Centre of Excellence for STEM. They are guided to become independent students who are capable of producing high-quality work through research, revision and extra support.
Students are assessed in a highly scientific business context and trained to present and research their work to show strong competency in scientific written skills and in mathematics. The course is graded by internal assessment in both years. Mandatory units consist of an even split between all three sciences and mathematics. Curriculum will be a mix of classroom learning and practical tasks.
Students will need a minimum of three grade 4s and three grade 5s at GCSE including a grade 4 in English. They must also have at least two grade 5s from a selection of Maths, Combined Science, Physics, Chemistry, or Biology, with the rest of these subjects at grade 4. Additional Information: We will consider 1 Vocational qualification in place of a GCSE as long as a grade 4 is achieved in English.
Don’t let the cost of studying put you off – most of our students study for FREE, and those who don’t qualify for funding are very often eligible for an Advanced Learner Loan.
Eligibility depends on both the course you have chosen to study and your individual circumstances.
