Science

Overview Statement:

Science is an experimental and investigative subject that is the foundation to many careers. All pupils at Lampton school study biology, chemistry and physics with the aim of making pupils scientifically literate, able to communicate in society about scientific developments and enthused about the sciences in general. Classes are taught in mixed-ability groups in Years 7 and 8. In Years 9-11, pupils are organised into sets and take a range of courses depending on ability and career path.

How to support your child:

Encourage your child to do their homework and when completed devote additional time to reviewing that week’s work. If possible, provide a quiet place where your child can study.

All pupils are asked to purchase revision guides at the start of the year and have access to online textbooks.
