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. 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

STella-Science-v3"We're passionate about science and we know you are too, which is why we've shaped our qualifications, support and resources so that you can teach in the way that meets the needs of your students.

We speak to teachers every day, from every type of school, and we involve them to continuously improve everything we do."

Stella Paes, Head of 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
