Science

We believe that Science has something to offer every student whatever their future needs and aspirations. From trainee hairdresser to particle physicist, mechanics apprentice to cancer researcher, everyone needs some level of basic Science understanding. We want our students to ask questions about the world around us, and find out the answers during their Science lessons. We use a range of teaching methods and use practical experimentation whenever possible. We try to take pupils on out of lesson experiences including outside learning and trips. We have high expectations of our students with regard to behaviour and public examination outcomes. We value all students and the contribution they make to Science lessons and we try to cater for the needs of all. We hope to inspire pupils to become lifelong Science learners and to foster enquiring minds so that many students choose to study the subjects at a higher level.

Science is a compulsory subject in both Key Stage 3 and 4. At Key Stage 5 we offer Biology, Chemistry and Physics A-Level.

Our Faculty has a clear vision: our raison d'etre is outlined here
