In Year 7 our students will begin their 5 year journey by learning how to be safe in the lab. From identifying hazards and risks to receiving their Bunsen Burner licence, these lessons will really have the new students feeling right at home and comfortable in their new surroundings.

Our curriculum sequence is designed to have thoughtful consideration of the KS2 learning journey our students have just completed in our Primary schools. We make references to concepts and areas that they may be familiar with and encourage them to retreive prior knowledge at every given opportunity. The first topics the students are taught after their introductory safety lessons are Energy, Matter and Organisms. Each of these topics have familiar concepts they will recognise and build upon.
