Why AQA Science?

Our science courses combine relevant, inspiring content and practical work. 

With a wide range of science qualifications, we can provide choice and flexibility to suit students of different abilities and aptitudes, from Year 7 to Year 13. We support all students from those who want to understand the basics, through to those who want to follow a career in science or follow a higher education science course.

Teachers tell us that we provide them with excellent support, especially during change. Register to be kept up-to-date with all the news in science education.

Our team

Julian Clarke"We work closely with teachers and schools to ensure we provide the support and resources you need to help your students succeed.

We believe in holistic science teaching and assessment – from Year 7 to Year 13. Discover our full range of accredited qualifications: from our Key Stage 3 syllabus, via different pathways at Key Stage 4, including the Entry Level Certificate, to AS and A-Level and the Applied General Science qualification.”

Julian Clarke, Head of Curriculum – Science

There will be no issues co-teaching the AS course alongside the full A-level during the majority of the lower sixth due to the common content.

Head of Science, Withington Girls' School, Manchester
