Science is delivered following the National Curriculum and pupils are taught are the three separate sciences (Biology, Chemistry and Physics). Pupils learn
key areas of study within each science include light, sound, separating mixtures, acids and alkalis, the human body and evolution, plants, animals,
forces and the outside world.
In Science, a cross curricular method to the subject is implemented by integrating in English, ICT/Computing, Mathematics & Humanities. There are
regular opportunities for discussions, role plays and practical activities. Science at Collingwood is all about making the students aware of the world they live in,
preparing them for that world, and where possible practical activities as well as outdoor activities will encourage the students to broaden their understanding.
Collingwood’s objective is for all students to leave with a formal accreditation. We enter students for array of qualifications based on their suitability; these
include AQA Entry Level 1 and AQA GCSE Biology.
