Curriculum: Science

The study of Science fires students' imagination and curiosity about phenomena in the world around them and through the skill of analysis and interpretation, offers opportunities to find explanations.  Science should spark the imagination, offer enlightenment and help shape students'view of the world and their contribution to it.

The Science curriculum ensures students gain a proper grounding in all manner of scientific theory and enables them to apply their knowledge and understanding to real life examples.  They will develop practical investigation skills and discover how scientific ideas contribute to technological change - affecting industry, business and medicine and improving the quality of life.  Students will also learn to question and discuss issues that may affect their own lives, and consider their own response.

The curriculum is enriched by the many visits, lectures, workshops and competitions which students take part in through the year.  Budding scientists are also able to develop their scientific skills, through the the popular Key Stage 3 Science Club, Key Stage 4 Study Support and the various Gifted and Talented opportunities and challenges.
