Science

A high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Science stimulates and excites pupil’s curiosity about phenomena and events in the world around them. It also satisfies this curiosity with knowledge. As science links direct practical experience with ideas, it can engage learners at many levels.

The Senior School Science Department follows the vision of The British Schools Foundation to provide a truly world class education for its pupils with regards to Biology, Chemistry and Physics.

The School offers modern and well-equipped laboratories enabling the department to focus as much as possible on learning through investigation and experimentation. Pupils from Year 7 through to Year 13 are encouraged to develop their knowledge, skills and most importantly to enjoy their science education to help develop a lifelong interest in in the subject.

The department follows the English National Curriculum at Key Stage Three and where appropriate enhances the curriculum to further challenge pupils, encouraging scientific curiosity, skills and understanding. This enhancement will be provided through quality lesson planning and choosing interesting and fun assignments and practical investigations for pupils to complete.

The Science department provides a tailored Science curriculum for Key Stages 4 & Sixth Form as the Senior School continues to grow from strength to strength. The same ideals are used in lesson planning and enhancing the exam curriculum. It is the department’s aim to give its pupils the confidence to explore Science with a real interest and hopefully create some of the world’s future scientists.
