Year 11 Sport Science SIE (11SSC)

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr R. Henty

Year 11 Sport in Education comprises FOUR compulsory subjects, Sport Science, Sport Maths, Sport Communications and Sport Studies. Students must apply to be in the programme and preference will be given to those students who have participated in the Year 9 and 10 SiE programmes. It is an expectation that students in the SiE programme will represent the school in at least one sport. Students can select two other option subjects to complete their timetable. 

Y11 Sport Science SIE (11SSC) allow students to achieve in science with internal assessments, and whilst teaching those give students a taste of the three external examinations. Students will be able to opt into the external examinations, and with further teaching be successful in gaining the entry requirements for either 12BIO (Yr 11 Genetics needed), or 12CHE (Yr 11 Acids and Bases needed), or 12PHY (Yr 11 Mechanics needed).

The course aims to use as much active learning and sports context learning as possible. This course has a minimum of 15 credits, or up to 27 depending on the student and choices made regarding external examinations.

Pathway

Students coming out of Year 11SSC can choose one or two or three Year 12 sciences. Only 11SSC students can move into 12SSC (providing they meet entry requirements). Some choose instead to take a specialist science course 12BIO 12CHE 12PHY only if they meet the entry requirements for which one(s) they have chosen.
Pass Mechanics to get access to 12PHY
Pass Genetics to get access to 12BIO
Pass Acids and Bases to get access to 12CHE
