John Rajnath started this petition to the school and

The school my daughter attends is St Thomas More Catholic school in Willenhall WV14. She now has to choose her options and triple science has always available at this school but now all of a sudden it is NOT available yet last years and earlier students had the option of choosing triple science at GCSE and are STILL studying triple science.

But now due to a shortage of teachers/funds it is now NOT an option yet the school is still running triple science for the older students who chose their options last year!

Most of science based vocational degree courses ask for  GCSE in the subject you are not studying at A-Level.

For example my daughter more than likely is planning to study Maths, Physics and Chemistry at A-Level. Any degree course such as medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, optometry etc require at least GCSE in biology. 

How will she meet that requirement??? She will have to do it while she is doing her A-Levels as if she won't have enough studying to do!

My understanding is every student who achieves grade 6 or above consistently in maths at KS3 will then be offered Triple Science for GCSE oprions. 

But that has been taken away for her and many other students at St Thomas More who are interested in science based career that requires A-Levels 

It's not a case of the school not doing triple science (as mentioned previous years students have chosen and are doing triple science at this very school)
