Science

Welcome to the Science department.

Science is one of the core subjects in the curriculum and an integral member of the STEM group of subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).

As a team our aim is to

  • stimulate and excite pupil’s curiosity and their interest in the world around them.
  • to enable pupils to take part in a range of practical activities and develop their skills through hands-on, activity based learning which allows them to link scientific theory to actual experience.
  • to develop the skills of logical thinking and analysis by investigating and interpreting experimental results and data
  • to provide an environment of questioning and discussion about science-based issues which affects their lives, the society in which they live and the world as a whole. Through this independent enquiry, they become more confident in expressing their views and evaluating decisions about scientific matters.

As a department we take pride in providing a nurturing and supportive learning environment where each pupil feels valued and success is recognised and celebrated.

We offer a range of courses at GCSE, AS and A-Level which are differentiated to provide an accessible and engaging experience with clear career pathways to suit each individual.
