Students begin the AQA GCSE Health and Social Care course in Year 9. The course involves units of coursework and external examination at the end of Year 11.
Students will study two units of work:
Unit 1: Understanding personal development and relationships
Unit 2: Health, social care and early years provision
Learning takes place through a variety of lessons and activities. Students have the opportunity to use iPads within lessons to both interact with the lesson and research. In addition to the teaching within school there are also links created between the school and local hospital to provide talks and taster days to the students.
