Science and Technology


At Kings we follow the National Curriculum for Science with the intention of:

  • Developing a deeper scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Developing a deeper understanding of nature, processes and methods of Science through different types of enquiries that will enable students to answer specific questions about the world around them.
  • Equipping students with the scientific skills required to understand the uses and implications of Science, today and in the future. We aim to produce scientific literate adults.
  • Promote the core PRIDE values within lessons allowing students to develop skills to become positive, respectful citizens that have a high level of integrity.

At Kings we look to build on the unique work completed in our feeder schools where most students can experience science from Year 5 onwards. We understand that students come to us with many scientific skills already embedded and it is the intent of our curriculum to further enhance these skills through our programme of study. We aim to build on the curiosity for Science that our students display and their desire to understand the world around them by providing them with the knowledge, concepts, skills and positive attitudes in order to provide society with confident, independent, scientific literate individuals of the future. It is the aim of our curriculum to inspire students to extend their scientific learning journey beyond KS4 and to take the opportunity for further study in Science at Kings and beyond.
