Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.


In the autumn term, Year 9 will be doing a series of booster topics, which have been designed to recap and ‘boost’ previous KS3 content covered. The booster topics cover a range of topics from all of the science disciplines, detailed question level analysis was carried out the topics that were identified were those that our students had the most weaknesses with and where many misconceptions still arise. For example, electromagnetism; electricity & circuits and waves. These boosters have been designed to prepare them for the important, end of Key Stage 3 assessment, at the end of the autumn term.

Alongside these boosters, are a series of lessons called “Working Scientifically weeks”. The Working Scientifically weeks are focused around different principles in all of the disciplines, such as: ‘Food as a fuel’ or ‘Rates of Reaction’ which all link directly to units in the GCSE curriculum. These lessons are designed to support the investigative skills of the students: from hypothesising and building a scientific question through to carrying out the practical work and concluding results.

From the Spring term onwards, Year 9 students will be starting and following the new AQA GCSE curriculum, starting with the first Biology, Chemistry and Physics modules.

Topics will be as follows:




Cell Biology

Atomic Structure and the periodic table



Bonding , structure, and the properties of matter


Infection and response

Quantitative chemistry

Particle model of matter


Chemical changes

Atomic structure


Energy changes
