At Hamstead Hall Academy our science curriculum aims to engage with learners of all abilities. In KS3 for example, the curriculum is based on the award-winning learning solution ‘Smart Science’ but this is adapted to suit the needs of Hamstead Hall learners. Through it we aim to provide memorable learning experiences that challenge students of all abilities and develop transferable personal learning and thinking skills that develop students as learners.
Topics covered in KS3 include cells, separation, forces, atoms, reactions, electricity, diet, acids and alkalis, energy, waves, photosynthesis, reactions and reproduction. Our GCSE course runs for three years and our students start this in year 9!
