Headteacher's Welcome Message
I would like to welcome you to Audenshaw School's Website. I hope that you enjoy visiting it and by doing so will gain a clearer idea of all that goes on within the school whether this is academic achievements, our wide range of extra-curricular activities on offer or our relationships with the wider local and global communities. I strongly believe that it is vital to celebrate the successes of our school and have designed the website to highlight these key areas. The school has always and will always place huge emphasis on academic achievement. We have a long and proud tradition of academic success and are proud of our standing within the community and also what our students go on to achieve after they leave the school. I hope that our traditional yet forward thinking ethos has been reflected in the stories and images on the pages of our website.
Jeanette Saw, Headteacher

KS3 Science

KS3 Science

Students in year 7 and 8 have 4 Science lessons per week and will study a range of Biology, Chemistry and Physics topics. Roughly 50% of the KS3 course should be practical investigation work. The scheme of work that we use is called Activate Science.

Year 7 Biology Topics

  • Cells
  • Structure and function of body systems
  • Reproduction

Year 7 Chemistry Topics

  • Particles and their behaviour
  • Atoms, elements and compounds
  • Reactions
  • Acids and alkalis

Year 7 Physics Topics

  • Forces
  • Sound
  • Light
  • Space

Year 8 Biology

  • Health and lifestyle
  • Ecosystems and processes
  • Adaptations and inheritance

Year 8 Chemistry Topics

  • The periodic table
  • Separation techniques
  • Metals and acids
  • The earth

Year 8 Physics Topics

  • Electricity and magnetism
  • Energy
  • Motion and pressure

Students will complete assessments at the end of each topic and these assessment grades will be used to inform their assessment point data. They will also sit an end of year exam, which will examine everything they have studied throughout that year.

Year 9 Science

Year 9 Science Year 9 students have 3 hours of science a week and receive one piece of homework. For the first term of year 9 we focus on key skills are concepts covered needed for KS4 with an emphasis on investigation skills. Following the completion of our skills unit our year 9 students begin their KS4 content.

At the end of year 9 students will be allowed to opt to take separate sciences or will take the compulsory combined.

In order to support your child in science you can purchase a revision guide. We recommend the CGP guides. These are available through parent pay. If you have already purchased a revision guide it can be used in year 7, 8 and 9.

Please encourage students to watch the news, read the science and technology pages of newspapers and to watch science based documentaries. Not only will this improve their interest in the subject but will allow them to apply the knowledge they learn in lessons to a real life situation.

You can also direct them to the websites listed below. These are key stage specific sites that will help your child with homework and revision.
