Science Curriculum Key Stage 5
Key Stage 5 (A-Levels and Level 3 BTEC)
At Campion we offer Biology, Chemistry and Physics at A-Level following the AQA Specification. There is no coursework and it is 100% examination based with practical endorsement which is completed in the classroom. Many of our students choose to do A-Levels in science In order to pursue careers in Engineering, Medicine, Biochemistry and many more.
We are a fortunate department as we have at least 2 specialists within each science discipline so all students are taught by subject specialists.
Many of our students are interested in science but do not always want to do A-Levels so choose to do the BTEC as it is more practical and allows more choice and it is equivalent to one A-Level. In Year 12 it introduces you to the different jobs a scientist may do and how science is perceived in the public eye, while in Year 13 students go on to study about what makes a criminal and how scientists support police investigators in helping to solve crimes. Students will study three units in year 12 and three units in year 13.
