The Nuffield Pathways Through Science course was developed to align with the very innovative and successful modular science course created by the Northern Examining and Assessment Board (NEAB now merged into AQA). There were five physics modules:

  • Energy Resources – exploring the issues arising from the...

The Nuffield Co-ordinated Sciences team devised a science course covering biology, chemistry and physics in two subjects-worth of curriculum time. This was in line with the 1985 government policy statement Science 5 - 16 which set down the requirement for schools to provide courses of broad balanced science for all...

The rationale and detailed guidance on the teaching of Nuffield Co-ordinated was provided in a single, large Teachers’ Guide. The Guide was arranged in parts. These parts are presented separately in this collection of resources. The first part of the Teachers’ Guide set out the aims and structure of the course. In...

The Nuffield Co-ordinated Sciences Biology course aimed to introduce the biological principles which would help students to explain many of the phenomena they will observe in the natural world. It was also designed to help students towards a greater understanding of the functioning of their own bodies and their...

The Nuffield Co-ordinated Sciences Chemistry course was designed to introduce students to the everyday, industrial, and environmental importance of chemistry, while explaining sufficient theory to show them how scientific knowledge could help them to make sense of the world in which they live. The content was...

The content of the Nuffield Co-ordinated Sciences Physics course was divided up into five topics:
P1 Matter
P2 Force and motion
P3 Energy
P4 Waves
P5 Electricity

The authors explained that physics cannot be presented as a ‘linear’ subject in which one topic leads inexorably to...

The Nuffield Co-ordinated Sciences supplementary Worksheets and Teachers' Guides were published to enable teachers to prepare students for separate-subject GCSE examinations in the three sciences. The extra worksheets were arranged to fit in with the topics in the teaching orders suggested for the main course.

The original Nuffield O-level Biology texts were published in the mid-1960s. About ten years later the texts and guides were revised following an evaluation of the materials.

Many teachers who had experience of using the materials contributed to the evaluation...

The Nuffield 13 to 16 project grew out of an investigation set up by the Nuffield Foundation Science Teaching Project in 1974. This was CESIS: Curriculum and Examination Systems in Integrated Science. The main finding was that what teachers needed was a project to help them make the best use of all the resources...

The 15 Basic ('B') units for year three (now year nine) of Nuffield 13 to 16 each included enough material for six double periods. Schools were expected to cover five units in a term.

The booklets for students were supplemented by worksheets, to be found in the middle of most teachers’ guides. These could be...

DfE Standards Unit: Improving Learning in Mathematics activities to support the learning of shape and space. The 'Active Learning' session plans include starting points, processes and photocopiable resources.

Nuffield Secondary Science in the 1960s was a response to the need to improve the teaching of science for the three-quarters of secondary students who were then unlikely to be entered for GCE O-level. The project team aimed to put into practice the approach to science teaching outlined in the Newsom Report,...

Nuffield Secondary Science carried out the ‘bold experimentation’ necessary to devise a new curriculum for the majority of students in secondary schools that the Newsom Report, Half Our Future had called for in 1963.

The developers of Nuffield Secondary Science described the resources they published as a 'quarry' from which teachers could select suitable material to build courses that would be significant for their students.

The resources are divided into eight themes. Each theme is divided in a number of fields of...

Most of the publications produced by the Nuffield Secondary Science project were designed to provide ideas for teachers. The detailed guidance was intended to help teachers to plan and implement science courses for the three-quarters of young people in secondary schools that would not take O-level.

The books...
