Oak Hill School


Welcome to the Science department! The department’s main focus is for students to develop ideas to explain the world around us and to learn scientific skills.

Science matters. That’s why we’ve built a variety of qualifications, so every student can enjoy Science and succeed in their studies. In Key Stage 3, students complete a variety of topics in the three sciences (Biology, Chemistry, and Physics) which ultimately prepares them for their Science studies in Key Stage 4. We are currently offering the following qualifications at Key Stage 4:

  • Entry Level Certificate in Science (Double or Single Award)
  • BTEC Firsts Applied Science
  • GCSE Biology (AQA)
  • GCSE Combined Science (AQA)


Please see below the examples of careers in Science:

  • Animal Technician
  • Biomedical Scientist
  • Electronics Engineer
  • Performance Sports Scientist
  • Nurse
  • Vet
  • Food Scientist
