Why study triple science?

Triple science is an opportunity for students to delve further into the study of science and earn three GCSEs in biology, chemistry and physics. The course includes everything covered in combined science, with extra content for each area and some additional topics.

What will I learn?

The biology topics are designed to enable students to understand the living parts of the environment around them and how their own body works. They will learn to use a microscope, investigate how organs within the body work and how scientists monitor the environment.

The chemistry topics will develop students understanding of matter and chemical reactions
between substances. They will carry out investigations to identify unknown substances and the factors affecting chemical reactions.

The physics topics cover the interactions between matter and energy, electricity and how the physical world works. They will learn how technology advances and how to investigate forces, magnetism and electricity

How will I be assessed?
