Science at Ysgol Bryn Elian

Studying Science

In the Science department you will discover, using a variety of resources, how things in the world around us work.


You will develop practical skills and learn how to view Science portrayed in the media.


Every pupil will study Science for 5 years culminating in year 11 with the acquisition of 2 GCSEs in Science. The GCSE course examines "How Science Works" in depth to allow you to have a good understanding of Science in everyday life.


If you enjoy Science and wish to take it further you can study for A'levels in Biology, Chemistry, Physics or Applied Science. These qualifications will open doors into further study at university on a large range of courses.
