About us

The staff within the Science department at Shafton, are passionate about making Science education accessible and exciting to all of our students and their families.

The Science department at Shafton has 9 teachers and 2 technicians. The department is based on Level 3 and spread across modern and fully resourced teaching laboratories and demonstration classrooms.

In Key Stage 3 we follow a scheme of learning which prepares our students with the knowledge and understanding they need for the various GCSE courses we run, embedding investigative skills throughout the topics.

In Years 9 and 10 students will learn the content required for the GCSE course, topics include areas such as Cells, Atomic structure, Forces and motion.

In Year 11 students will follow 1 of 2 different pathways. Students can either follow the Core and Additional Science pathway which comprises of 2 separate GCSE’s in Science or alternatively students can study separate GCSE’s in Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
