Our dedicated team deliver high quality, engaging programmes of study in line with the National Curriculum across biology, chemistry and physics both at Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5. Within this we develop students’ conceptual knowledge as well as a plethora of transferrable skills including an understanding of scientific methodology, problem solving and critical thinking. An appreciation and understanding of key scientific terminology and how it is used, and often misused, in everyday language is also woven into our teaching and learning practice.
Many of our students will go on to study science at higher levels. For others GCSEs or A levels will be the end of their formal science education, though, as previously mentioned, not the end to their science learning. Whatever path our students chose to follow once they leave Gosforth Academy we aim to nurture their curiosity and give it direction; thus arming young people with the ability to acquire information and the confidence to process it. This in turn empowers them to make informed decisions throughout their lives, even when presented with completely unique circumstances.
