Nucleus STEM Curriculum
Students within the Nucleus Gifted STEM Stream will cover broadly the same curriculum as the rest of their year group with some notable exceptions; Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics and Computer Science.
The amount of curriculum time for these subjects varies, with a reduction in curriculum time for certain other subjects to allow greater access to the STEM subjects. All Nucleus students will be targeted at grade 9 in their GCSEs in the Sciences, Mathematics and Computer Science.
Nucleus students will have access to small group peripatetic Music lessons, learning to play an instrument of their choosing. The cost of this is covered by Nucleus STEM Stream.
