At Bower Park Academy, scientific enquiry is the focus of our teaching and learning. Developing ideas through engaged learning activities helps our learners appreciate that science can be exciting, interesting and relevant to everyday life. We hope to create enquiring minds through the use of practical and interactive learning, enabling students to develop a range of scientific knowledge which links to the world in which they live.

Key stage 3

Students in Years 7 and 8, and in the first term of Year 9, follow the Key Stage 3 National Curriculum course, which aims to develop an interest in, and excitement for, the sciences. After the Christmas break, Year 9 students follow the new Key Stage 4 Edexcel 9-1 courses.

Key stage 4

To allow our students enough time to learn and develop the necessary skills to pass their GCSE, we start our Key Stage 4 course in year 9. With the change in the National Curriculum, we are now following the Edexcel 9-1 qualifications for the Combined Science GCSE (1SC0).
