Learn more about our Science Department
At Denton Community College, we have developed a rich science curriculum that inspires students to become inquisitive and curious scientists. Through both practical and theoretical study, we ensure that students safely navigate the skills required in biology, chemistry and physics, which allow them to gain a better understanding of the world around them. We prepare our youngsters who begin in year 7 with a transition unit, which allows them the opportunity to revisit and consolidate the science they learned in their KS2 studies. As they progress through lower school, we ensure that all our students are able to develop their resilience and independence in applying their subject knowledge, we ensure that the learning is age and stage appropriate, incorporating the right level of challenge. As students begin their KS4 studies, our experienced department facilitates the discussion of real world applications of science. We have high expectations of our learners which has enabled us to successfully raise the aspirations of our students to continue their post-16 education in science. We are proud to offer both the Combined Science GCSE pathway as well as the Separate Science GCSE Pathway, ensuring that all students leave Denton Community College with the knowledge and skills required to pursue their goals and ambitions.
