Science (Core) GCSE

Science attempts to explain the world in which we live and the impact that technologies have on our society and our environment. Scientists try to explain and solve problems using evidence.

Studying GCSE Science will give you skills that will help in other areas of your learning for example, understanding data, writing hypothesis and asking questions in group discussions.

What our students say…

“Deciding to retake GCSE Science was a good choice for me as I enjoyed science at school but didn’t get the grade I needed for the career I am hoping to pursue.”

“I’ve really enjoyed the course as a lot of what we have covered applies to the real world of work and I feel prepared for many potential careers.”

“I enjoy the practical parts of the course and I like being in the state-of-the-art laboratories that the new Science Centre provides.”
