Triple Science Case Study: Planning Ahead on More Than One Front
From the Triple Science Support Programme, this case study illustrates how a school has planned ahead and taken a wide range of actions to provide and improve triple science GCSEs, drawing on the skills of a well-developed science team.
The case study includes some background information about St Michaels CE High School (Lancashire), and outlines the following elements:
• involvement of the school leadership
• flexibility in staffing and timetabling
• trialling ideas before full implementation
• using the skills of a team
Key learning points for others are identified and include:
• adopting an ‘entitlement’-led approach to triple science,
• the need to find time and flexibility to teach the courses both inside and outside the timetable, and
• the need to monitor the effect of provision after school.
