Triple Science Case Study: Identifying Students Early
From the Triple Science Support Programme, this case study illustrates how a school used a combination of identifying potential triple science students as early as Year Eight with student perspectives on the triple science courses and their reasons for choosing it.
The case study includes some background information about Beal High School (Redbridge) and how its triple science runs alongside other science courses, as well as student perspectives of triple science.
Key learning points for others are identified and include:
• the use of subject specialist teachers from Year Nine to bring an extra passion and confidence about the subject into the teaching,
• talking to Year Eight students about the opportunity of triple science to encourage uptake, and
• making triple science groups feel special in order to motivate students and support parents in raising expectations.

HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
