Key Stage 5 Science @ KTS

Pupils should reach the entry requirements at Additional Science at GCSE to undertake one or more A-Level Science courses. All three Sciences are offered at A Level. Numbers fluctuate from year to year, with generally two teaching groups in each subject

Current minimum GCSE requirements for 2015-16: B grade average in Double Science, Mathematics and English although there are restrictions on subject choices depending upon performance at GCSE- see the Sixth form prospectus for further information.

Pupils sit their AS qualifications at the end of Year 12 and, if they achieve at least a D grade they may go on to the full A Level at the end of Year 13.

All Biology, Chemistry and Physics courses follow the AQA specification for both AS & A level.

Students receive a textbook and an online support subscription to assist with study and depending on the teacher, material provided by their teachers on Google Classroom.

A decision to take a Science A level should not be taken lightly: the syllabuses for all subjects are very demanding in all respects and our experience indicates that students cannot afford to relax if they wish to achieve high grades.
