The faculty follows the AQA specification: Biology 8461, Chemistry 8462 and Physics 8463. Teaching starts in Y9 and pupils receive a separate GCSE grade for each course.
Pupils have four lessons every two weeks in each of the disciplines of Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Students regularly go on to successfully study science A-levels at Herschel.
Assessment for each GCSE is two written papers of 1 hour 45 minutes. Practical work is an essential feature of the course and students will carry out many experiments in addition to the 8 practical activities required by AQA.
