Science

The Science Department aims to deliver practical and engaging lessons to all pupils at Hall School Wimbledon. We aim to ensure that pupils of all abilities enjoy and make progress in science. We endeavour to develop skills that are relevant to the practice of Science in everyday life. We strive to stimulate curiosity, interest and enjoyment in Science.




Key Stage 3

All students are taught Biology, Chemistry and Physics from the start of Year 7 through a rotation of topics which helps them to develop their individual interests further. Pupils in Year 7 and 8 have five lessons of science a week and during these years, the National Curriculum is followed in most respects, but with more emphasis on traditional school Science aimed at giving a deeper understanding of the basic principles of the subject. At the start of Year 7 pupil enjoy an Investigative Skills topic based wholly on the Scientific Method and of course, lots of experiments! 

Key Stage 4

Students start KS4 in Year 9 where they will study all three sciences by specialist teachers in 3 separate labs. In Year 9 they are set and this informs the course they follow whether that be AQA Combined Science (Trilogy) or Separate Sciences. Biology, Chemistry and Physics are assessed in two 1 hour 45 minute papers in the summer of Year 11.
