The Benefits of Studying Secondary Science

Our Secondary Science homeschooling course will fire your child’s curiosity about phenomena in the world around them and offer them opportunities to find explanations.

It will engage them at many levels, linking direct practical experience with scientific ideas. Experimentation and modelling are used to develop and evaluate explanations, encouraging critical and creative thought.

They will discover how scientific ideas contribute to technological change – affecting industry, business and medicine and improving quality of life. It will also teach them to question and discuss issues that may affect their own lives, the directions of societies and the future of the world.

Three of the modules for each year include a practical section which involves setting up an experiment and recording the results. In each case there is a practical worksheet to complete as part of the assignment for that module.

At the end of Year 9 of Secondary Science you will receive a report on your child’s progress. A report on the average grade achieved by your child at the end of Years 7 or 8 is available on request.
