Year 11 Science - Practical

11SC1
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: J. Hudson

This is a practical, alternative science course aimed at students needing to work at a slower pace. For example, everyday contexts like horticultural science are used to provide the knowledge and skills essential to everyday living. The course is totally internally assessed and gains fewer Level One credits than the main Year 11 Science course
