Transition from Key Stage 2: In order to ensure all students have covered the same content, we run a series of lessons covering Key Stage 2 content followed by a baseline assessment:
- Health and safety, Science rules, assessment
The following topics will be covered:
Assessments take place each half term and are linear (some assessment content will be on previous term’s work).
Please refer to the Year 7 and Year 8 Science Assessment Policy for more information.

KS3 Revision Guides
The Science department is happy to offer students the opportunity to purchase a KS3 all-in-one revision guide and exam practice book to help support them when they are revising for the end of topic and termly tests that we carry out in Science. They are not compulsory and will not be used in lessons or for homework but we wanted to offer them to students as parents have often mentioned that they wanted to be able to support their children when they are revising at home.
The book is split up into the different topics with sections to revise, questions to check their knowledge and understanding and then a big multi-topic exam (with mark scheme) at the end. We are able to offer it at cost price of £4 whereas it costs up to £8 in the shops or online.
Science is now an AQA department and so students are prepared for their GCSEs from year 7 onwards. The revision guide exam questions are similar in style to the new GCSEs and so this provides additional practice for them.
To purchase the revision guide, students need to take £4 to the finance office during their break or lunch and they will be given a receipt. They then bring the receipt to the Science workroom and they will be given a book with a name sticker on, to help identify the book as their own.
