We have highly qualified and experienced science team follow in-house prepared Schemes of Work for grades 6, 7, 8 using Heath programmes of study with a variety of supporting textbooks such as Lonsdale. This leads onto the children sitting the Cambridge Checkpoint / S.A.T.S examinations in Grade 8.


Checkpoint is an external examination under the auspices of Cambridge International Examinations (C.I.E.). Recent results at this level have been well above the international average.


In Grades 9 and 10 the students study C.I.E. - I.G.C.S.E. Cambridge examinations in Biology, Chemistry and Physics. G.C.S.E. is a two years course of study that culminates in a three paper external examination for each science subject. The I.G.C.S.E. examinations are universally recognised as a basis for further studies.

We are fully resourced in Key stage 4 to support our young learners in achieving their fullest potential.  In Grade 11 the students are able to sit A.S examinations in all three Sciences; Physics, Biology and Chemistry, preparing them for University entrance. At A.S. level, as part of achieving this award, the young scientists are prepared thoroughly for external public practical exams in laboratory procedures and experimentation.


MAO School is fortunate to have two excellent technicians who work from a large, well-equipped preparation area. There are four laboratories, that are being  upgraded this summer, as well as the classrooms which are used for theory-based lessons.
