More Practical Science

The Academic group have been busy this week performing kidney dissections as part of their practical assessment. The aim of the experiment was to examine the external wall of the kidney before cutting into it to identify the structures inside. The dissection was done independently, under the supervision of staff, and despite the initial anxieties some of the students had, they all managed to complete the experiment successfully.

The Academic Option gives KS4 students the opportunity to study a range of GCSE subjects and is an alternative choice for those who wish to follow a broader range of courses rather than focus on a single vocational subject. Subjects include Science, History, Religious Education, Citizenship and a music option called School of Rock.
