A LEVEL AND GCSE RESULTS
Biology students at Charters School will develop an understanding and appreciation for the life surrounding them. We offer a supportive yet challenging environment with varied opportunities to explore the natural world through research, group experiments and enquiry-lead learning.
Chemistry students at Charters School will develop understanding and awareness of the science that surrounds them and how chemical reactions are an integral aspect of their daily lives. They will develop technical expertise with a range of equipment, and knowledge of how science and technology changes society, from forensics to formulations and combustion to climate change. Transferable skills, such as the scientific methods and data analysis, will prepare them with the knowledge needed for their future as an informed citizen, alongside providing strong foundations for a specialised scientific career.
Physics students at Charters School will develop understanding and awareness of the Physics that surrounds them. They will learn to evaluate critically how science and technology changes society. With varied opportunities to learn through research, discovery and developing their practical skills, students will be engaged in and enjoy their learning. Students will develop teamwork skills, apply numeracy, and learn to effectively communicate their knowledge. These transferable skills will prepare them for their future in society and any career path they choose, alongside providing strong foundations for specialised Physics and Engineering Careers.
- They are encouraged to hold their own point of view about scientific developments, articulate advantages and disadvantages, broadening their awareness through research, debate and discussion.
- They will learn how science has developed over time, building on the understanding and research of others, and the importance of scientists working as a community.
- Through scientific enquiry they will learn to question and use the laboratory resources and equipment to provide data to come to conclusions.
- They will make connections between the scientific principles and theory they learn and the applications in everyday life.
- They will be aware of how scientific theory links to the varied occupations that use science, and specific science careers.
