Pure and Applied Sciences

At St Paul’s Academy, the central aim of the Pure & Applied Science Learning Zone is to help students to develop the skills, attitudes and qualities needed for them to contribute positively to an increasingly scientific and technological society.

 

To achieve this, we provide students with a wide range of activities and experiences that will challenge them to develop scientific concepts and encourage them to reflect upon the impact that Science has on society.

The curriculum offered makes full use of appropriate scientific investigation opportunities, maximises the use of e-learning wherever possible and supports classroom based work with suitable enrichment activities such as presentations, visits to scientific institutions and field trips.

At Key Stage 3 students follow a 7 term scheme of work that emphasises the central role of scientific models through modules based on the key themes of physical, chemical, earth, life and environmental science in line with the AQA KS3 syllabus.  The course provides students with regular formative, diagnostic and summative assessments of their progress with the students themselves taking an active part in assessing their own progress.

Students then follow a 8 term Key Stage 4 programme of study. The Pure & Applied Science Learning Zone follows the AQA Combined Science Trilogy syllabus which contains Biology, Chemistry and Physic topics. This double award programme is assessed with terminal examinations during the Summer Term of Year 11.
