Babington House School Curriculum

Senior

Co-ed aged 11 - 16



Science

Babington House's Science Department has two laboratories and specialist teachers in all three scientific disciplines.

From day one, pupils embark on their seven-year learning journey. To avoid the ‘wasted years’ of Key Stage 3, students at Babington are exposed to GCSE content from the first day of Senior School. Instead of the old, modular science structure, pupils are introduced to ideas that develop throughout their time at Babington. This reflects the new, tougher GCSE requirements and better prepares pupils for their Science GCSE’s and A Levels. Please see further detail in the tables below:

Biology Table

Chemistry Table

Physics Table

Additional information:

  • Key Stage 3 and 4 follow the AQA Combined Science (trilogy) and Separate Science specification.
  • Key Stage 5 follow the OCR (A) Biology, Chemistry and Physics specifications.
  • Summative assessments take place every half term using questions based on past papers. Formative assessments take place in every lesson.

Experimental skills are a vital part of our curriculum. In each topic, pupils are given extensive opportunity to develop their use of the scientific method.
