Science GCSEs: exploring different models of organisation and timetabling


This session considers the logistical challenges facing schools in delivering comprehensive science provision, and reports on the findings to these research questions, to: Identify and describe the common models for timetabling the sciences at GCSE Determine how many schools use each of these models Find out how students and teachers are allocated within those timetable models Investigate how common it is for schools to follow curriculum models that are potentially problematic in the sciences. This research was commissioned by the Association for Science Education, Institute of Physics, Royal Society, Royal Society of Biology and the Royal Society of Chemistry.

Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
