The school I am currently in has reduced the teaching time for triple scientists to 5 hours per week. In my view this is at least 2 hours per week too few. After contacting a former colleague who teaches in a school that used to allow 7 hours per week, I found that he too was trying to teach triple scientists in 5 hours per week. Is this the same in other schools? Is triple science seen as the option that can be sacrificed to allow various GCSE equivalent courses to be taught that are not needed by most pupils who follow the triple science course? Is this another step along the road of schools caring more about the school results compared to those of individual pupils? What is your experience? What do you think?
