Science Department

Welcome to Science

We believe that science has something to offer every student. The subject content and practical activities ensure that lessons are interesting and relevant to all types of students. All learning pathways in science give students the option to progress to A-levels in science or other subjects. Science lessons are designed to promote understanding of scientific knowledge and processes along with developing students’ ability to working scientifically. Students will take part in a wide range of activities that will develop scientific skills such as analysis communication, enquiry and problem solving.
