Science

Science teaching at Limehurst Academy aims to give all children a strong understanding of the world around them whilst acquiring specific skills and knowledge to help them to think scientifically, to gain an understanding of scientific processes and also an understanding of the uses and implications of Science today and for the future.​

The Science department delivers a course that not only fulfils all the requirements of the National Curriculum, but also looks towards to the new GCSEs, helping to lay secure foundations for work in Years 9, 10 and 11. With the changes to terminally examined GCSEs, their increasing focus on the application of ideas and their amplified requirements for maths, literacy and communication, we have integrated these skills into the whole of our Key Stage 3 course. This means that, from the start of Year 7, students will steadily grow in confidence when using mathematical skills, thinking scientifically and communicating their ideas clearly and logically.​
