Year 9

Topics Covered

Year 9 GCSE science (AQA)


Over the course of the year students will cover topics from:


  • Cell structures and the organisation of the Human System
  • Adaptation and Interdependence


  • Atoms & The Periodic Table
  • Bonding & Structures


  • Particles, Waves and Energy
  • Speed, Work and Energy


There will be a short written end of unit test and the end of each topic (roughly every half term) that will be completed during lesson time.  Students’ progress will also be assessed during lessons using set of criteria developed by the school.

Evidence from both types of assessment will be combined to produce an overall judgement of a student’s progress.

Students will go on to sit these exams on Year 10 and 11, depending on setting and choices from their options
