KS3

Classes are taught all three sciences in mixed ability groups in Years 7 and 8. There is some setting in Year 9 to allow students to access the highest levels at the end of the key stage and those students studying Triple Science begin their studies in Year 9 as opposed to the normal Year 9 curriculum. The scheme of work has been developed by staff at Carlton le Willows and the course is well equipped.

KS4

In Key Stage 4 students follow the Edexcel science syllabus for Combined Science. Triple Science is also offered as an option.
