Our Ethos

At Ysgol Rhosnesni High School we are proud of the achievements of our students in a wide range of fields both academic and enrichment, and we believe in high standards and expectations. We believe that we can make a positive difference to the future life-chances of each and every young person.


We believe in working together with our students to develop their future roles as ambassadors of learning, citizens and workers and aim to equip them with the necessary skills, knowledge and understanding they will need for future adult life.

Science

KS4 Science

Year 10

The course builds upon the work covered during KS3. Pupils are taught the three sciences, (biology, chemistry and physics) and sit three individual 60 minute long papers in the Jan or May/June of Year 10. Each paper accounts for 25% of their final mark. The remaining 25% is made up of a practical assignment conducted in lesson time during the course. At the end of Year 10, pupils will have completed core Science GCSE. This course prepares pupils for either Additional Science or BTEC Science in Year 11.

Year 11

Separate Science Year 10

Pupils are taught the three separate sciences (Biology, Chemistry and Physics), and sit their final papers in May/June of Year 11. There is also a coursework element to each GCSE which counts for 25% of the marks available for each subject, this has to be completed in Year 11. At the end of Year 11 pupils will have three GCSEs in the sciences they have studied. Each grade awarded can be different, depending on the level of attainment in each subject area.
