Although the GCSE Combined Science courses prepare you for further scientific study at A-level, we also offer the Separate Science option route which is a good choice if you have a particular enthusiasm and aptitude for Science. If you opt for Separate Science over Combined Science there will be more lessons given to the subject, which allows us to study concepts to a greater depth and develop additional practical skills. In biology these topics include further detail on the human body such as the structure and function of the brain, the eye, and the kidneys. In Chemistry there is more emphasis on chemical analysis of compounds, the structure and reactions of organic molecules and additional quantitative analysis. In Physics there is an additional topic on space and the universe.
