A real combative performance from both sides meant it was close until the end when Jacob was put through on goal to make it 2-0 and game over. Beacon now face Glyn or Carshalton Boys in the next round! TGA https://t.co/IwXTbRTTHJ

It was not long before this paid off as Jack's flick at the near post meant the ball dropped nicely for George to spectacularly overhead kick the ball to loop over the goalkeeper to make it 1-0 Beacon; cue Beacon celebrations. https://t.co/bfZtDiJLkK

A few back to back injuries for Beacon meant we changed positions of players which actually allowed us to gain control of key areas of the pitch that Greenshaw had dominated at the start and also launch our own attacks. At half time it was an even 0-0. https://t.co/R4DV7nClr8

The year 11 football team marched on in the Surrey Cup thanks to a hard fought 2-0 victory over Greenshaw. The game started with Greenshaw slightly on top and creating a couple of chances but none to worry Ryan in goal. https://t.co/QcygRLDrkn

Science

Statement of Intent

We aim to equip students with knowledge, skills and understanding as set out in the National Curriculum for Science.  Students at The Beacon School will develop an understanding and awareness of the science that surrounds them and each individual subject is an integral aspect of their daily lives as well as how the 3 sciences interlink and cross link with other subjects.  

Children will know more and remember more.  Their prior knowledge from KS2 is considered as well as their skills and vocabulary and build upon these in subsequent years groups. Our curriculum seamlessly links on to further education through its interlinked topics and concepts throughout with our resolve to not only teach to a high academic standard but to inspire students to take Biology/Chemistry/Physics post 16 as well as become global citizens.

The science education that they receive should provide every student equally with opportunities to enable them to make informed decisions.  The aims can be summarised as:

  1.  To ensure students develop scientific knowledge and understanding of chemistry

  2. To develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of enquiry that help them to answer questions about the world around them.

  3. To relate their scientific knowledge to its uses in society and in the future.

Ultimately therefore, through the learning of Science, we want to prepare the students with transferable skills they can use in the future as informed citizens as well as providing a strong foundation for a specialised scientific career.
