Explore and discover

Science impacts on our lives every day. It improves our health, helps solve crime and broadens our understanding of the world around us. Studying Science can help you to progress to university or move to a career in forensics, biomedical science, nursing or veterinary work. Fascinating new discoveries are made daily in laboratories around the world and you could be part of this exciting world of exploration.

Applied Science BTEC Extended Diploma

This is the course for someone who loves 'hands on' Science. It combines in-depth study of Biology, Chemistry and Physics, whilst developing core skills in English and Mathematics. You will spend most of your college time in laboratories, carrying out a variety of practical scientific investigations. It is an appropriate course for anyone wishing to pursue a career in any of the science industries and for those who wish to study Science at university. The course lasts for two years and the Extended Diploma is equivalent to three A Levels in Science.

Biology AS & A Level

The course covers a wide range of biology topics, from basic biochemistry and cell structure, body systems such as the digestive and respiratory systems, photosynthesis, genetics and inheritance, ecology and classification. A variety of teaching and learning strategies will be used throughout the course. Practical work is an important part of this course and students will complete a number of experiments, working on their practical skills and application of knowledge.

Biomedical Science BTEC Extended Diploma

This is the course for someone who loves 'hands on' Science. It combines in-depth study of Biology, Chemistry and Physics, whilst developing core skills in English and Mathematics. You will spend most of your college time in laboratories, carrying out a variety of practical scientific investigations. It is an appropriate course for anyone wishing to pursue a career in any of the science industries and for those who wish to study Science at university. The course lasts for two years and the Extended Diploma is equivalent to three A Levels in Science, but without the exams.

Chemistry AS & A Level

A Level Chemistry builds upon the knowledge gained at GCSE but explores it much further. It is a demanding and hugely rewarding subject that encourages deep learning and develops higher-order skills. This course covers a wide range of chemistry topics that build from the basics of formulae writing, calculating chemical quantities and atomic structure. We examine the application of these core principles, in the context of intermediate bonding and the effects of intermolecular forces and redox reactions, organic chemistry, equilibria, transition metals and organic nitrogen chemistry. This conceptual learning is underpinned by practical skills.

Physics AS & A Level

Physics enables you to study everything in the Universe, from the absolute smallest particles (quarks) to the largest structures known to man (galaxies). How does it accomplish this? By using mathematics to describe the patterns we observe in experiments. By discovering these patterns, Physics has served as a foundation for most of the engineering and technology we have today. Smartphones and cars, space stations and robots, skyscrapers and the internet, all of these have been built using Physics. So as Britain becomes more technologically advanced, the demand for engineers and physicists is higher than ever. This course is your first step towards not only entering those careers, but understanding some of the deepest mysteries of the Universe.
