Whilst a Science option is not compulsory in Year 11 students are strongly encouraged to consider is as one of their options due to the opportunities it opens in terms of Level 2/3 courses in addition to future careers. It is a subject that gives breadth to their curriculum.
Science is an essential subject for many careers such as engineering, dentistry, veterinary science, medical professions, health and physical education careers, horticulture, farming, teaching and the food industry. As well as gaining scientific knowledge and understanding, there is a strong practical component in all Science subjects which appeals to many students. Any students who are wanting to take Biology, Chemistry or Physics at Level 2 must take this course.
