Welcome to the world of potions, dissections and defying gravity. Welcome to Science!
Here at Oakfield we have a varied science curriculum, still following the guidelines set by the National Curriculum but tailor made for the different pathways of the individual learners.
All of the learners are set high expectations and all of them rise to the challenge. The practical lessons are an integral part of the curriculum and, even with health and safety at the forefront, these lead to some explosive moments and awesome outcomes.
In Year 10 and 11 we run a GCSE Science course with the learners getting down into the real details of biology, chemistry and physics. We challenge misconceptions and develop our problem solving, keeping our expectations and resilience high.
We also run Level 1 and Entry level courses in Years 10 and 11.
Learners develop a love for the subject and are always keen to explore more and present their findings and journeys of discovery, whether it is in the school setting or out on an adventure.
