Year 8's have been investigating, designing and building marble mazes this week in Science


What is a chemical reaction? Our Year 8's have been experimenting in Chemistry this week


enjoyed the and in London on Friday. They learnt about gender equality, queer history, intersex rights, wrote poetry and learnt how to make a positive change via social media


It's 🎉 Congratulations to our winners this week for embodying our 'Confidence'


Wow! Our STEAMettes club have been exploring painting using forces and marbling techniques to create some amazing planets for our Physics lab 🌎


What a great way to start this beautiful day . 7I enjoying a game of kick rounders in PE this morning


At our Year 6 days, we have been team building in PE, crime solving in English and taking part in some French games 🙌


It has been wonderful meeting our rising Year 7's on their transition days this week


A reminder that school will be closed tomorrow for students. We look forward to seeing you on Monday!


We are seeking an experienced and enthusiastic Science Technician to join the team in September! Come and join our wonderful school:

Year 7

Chemistry is studied separately to Physics and Biology across KS3 and KS4, as we believe it is an important subject in its own right so students have a clear understanding of each discipline within the Science curriculum.

In Year 7, students are introduced to matter including classifying and identifying solids, liquids and gases.  Students then go on to learn about chemical reactions and how to determine with it is a physical or chemical change and if a physical change what separation techniques can be used to return it back to its starting point.  During the Summer term we focus on the Earth.  We start by looking at its different components and then move on to the rock cycle and how the three rock types are formed.

Year 8

In Year 8, students study climate change and begin to look at the carbon cycle and greenhouse gases and its effect on the environment.  Students then go on to learn about the Earth’s natural resources and look into extracting metals and other raw resources.  Following this students will build on their Year 7 work on chemical reactions and energy look at how bond making and breaking effect the energy taken in or given off.  During the Summer term we focus on the Periodic Table.  We start by looking at the differences between atoms and elements and then an atom's structure.  We finish off by looking at trends and patterns in the periodic table distribution of elements.
