Science

The Science Faculty is a busy outward looking and thriving area of the school. We have a lot of expertise within the staff. We are leading some of the innovations in using ICT for teaching and planning.  The Faculty is staffed by a team of thirteen experienced teaching staff and is supported by three technicians and a curriculum assistant.

Our Aim

We aim to deliver a fun, engaging, high-quality science education, that provides students with the foundations and knowledge for understanding the world around them and beyond.

Students will learn the possibilities for careers in science and develop a curiosity which will help inform them in everyday life, as well nurture the scientists of the future.

We run very successful courses in A level Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Geology and we are looking to maintain this whilst implementing the new KS5 changes.
