Key stage 5 and post-compulsory programme
New programme from September 2016
Our new Key Stage 5 education programme at Kew Gardens has been developed and designed for the new Biology and Geography curricula at A, AS level, BTEC and the International Baccalaureate. These sessions meet the requirements of several exam boards, please see each session outline for full details.
All sessions are 90 minutes in length, one session equates to half a day and a full day incorporates two sessions. When booking please pick half or full day and include your choice of sessions in the comments box. Our team will be in touch with you to tailor the day to meet your students’ needs.
Through active participation and inquiry-based learning, we offer students opportunities to work scientifically in areas that are difficult or impossible to recreate in the school environment. Our experienced teachers use current relevant Kew projects (local and global) that illustrate key concepts through real-life examples.
To assess students’ progression, we use a mixture of peer discussion, open-ended questioning, shared experiences, predictions, investigating results and plenaries.
