Science

At Perins School Science is taught as a combined subject in Years 7 and 8 with topics covering the three sciences of Biology, Chemistry and Physics. This involves written work, backed up by engaging practicals, designed to bring the concepts that the students have learnt to life.
In Year 9 students begin their GCSE course work in the spring term. At this stage the students will be selected to either continue their Science studies as a combined subject or as three separate subjects.

Those taking the combined option will study Core Science and Additional Science to gain two GCSEs. Here Biology, Chemistry and Physics are each studied in four separate modules.

Students taking the separate GCSE Science subjects of Biology, Chemistry and Physics will study six modules for each subject, leading to three GCSEs.

In 2016, 114 students took three separate Sciences and achieved  grade A* to C pass rates of  97% in Biology, 100% in Physics and 97% in Chemistry.
