A Level Science at The De La Salle Academy

Course description

Have you ever wondered how robots work, what synapses do, or how the universe began? Science impacts on our everyday lives, whether we think about ‘how and why rainbows are formed’ or ‘what causes lightning?’ As a department we aim to stimulate the curiosity of our students and help them understand the things that happen in the world around them. At The De La Salle Academy Science Department we offer opportunities to find explanations through discussion and experimentation. Students will learn how science contributes to the world around them in terms of technological change and how it can contribute to a better quality of life in the 21st century.

We are a caring and dedicated department and we will inspire future scientists. We are dedicated to not only delivering a rich and challenging curriculum but equipping students with thinking and practical skills that will help them to become independent learners when they go on into Higher Education or the workplace. Students learn best when they are fully engaged and we aim to teach students to become informed citizens able to form opinions on the big scientific issues facing our world.

Course content

At Key Stage 5 we offer a variety of routes through. At A level Physics, Chemistry and Biology are available as well as BTEC National Award in Applied Science (Forensics).
