Entry Guidelines

Students will build on a foundation of scientific knowledge and skills gained in Years 9 and 10 to explore how the natural, physical, and material worlds work so that they can participate as critical, informed, and responsible citizens in a society in which Science plays a significant role. The units of work are designed to help students understand the world around them and to develop a wide range of practical skills. Practical work is a major part of this course.
