Science

It is our aim at Dyson Perrins for students to enjoy learning about science and to do well  studying the subject. We hope to motivate students to go on to study science in greater depth because of the interest developed during their lessons.

We have a team of 8 teaching staff and three technicians who work together to provide a stimulating learning environment for all students. All lessons are taught in fully equipped laboratories and IT suites with interactive whiteboards enabling staff to use all means to explain concepts, demonstrate procedures and allow students to discover for themselves. 

There is a rural studies and wildlife area outside of the science department with a greenhouse, beds and a pond to allow specific study on these areas.

Science KS5

The science department offers four science courses at Level 3:  

A level Biology
A level Chemistry
A level Physics
BTec level 3 Applied Science Subsidiary Diploma
Animal care 

Science KS4

The science department offer GCSE Biology, GCSE Chemistry and GCSE Physics courses for students who are especially interested and capable in this subject. This will enable these students to select science subjects for A level study.  We also offer Double Award Science GCSE, within which students still study units in Biology, Chemistry and Physics.

Throughout Years 10 and 11, students will have eight lessons of Science split between specialist teachers. They will cover aspects of all three sciences (Biology, Chemistry and Physics) leading to 2 GCSE qualifications in Science. This course is suitable for students who aim to increase their understanding of key Science topics as well as develop knowledge, skills and understanding of “How Science Works”. Practical elements will be taught in lessons and these skills can be  tested in the  Y11 examinations.

Science KS3

The science department studies the National Curriculum including the investigative and analytical skills that are needed for GCSE work. We run activities and events for Science Week in March with the aim of showing students all sorts of possibilities in science that they may not have heard of before.           

“Pupils have the opportunity to develop their understanding of particles and chemical reactions in Chemistry lessons; living systems including animals and plants and their interaction with the environment in Biology lessons; and forces, energy and space in the Physics lessons. Science is taught in topics, and practical skills are developed throughout the course thereby preparing students for the demands of GCSE Science. Pupils are taught in laboratories and have 6 lesson of science per fortnight.”
