Intent

In Science we cover all 3 main aspects, Biology, Chemistry and Physics. We look to help the students learn and understand science so that they can apply their knowledge and emerge as students who are informed about the science around them.

The specification encourages the development of knowledge and understanding in science through opportunities for working scientifically. This will involve talking, reading and writing about science but also completing scientific practicals and representing science either mathematically or through modelling. By the end of the curriculum students will have a broad range of scientific skills that they are able to apply to the modern world.

Within science there are significant opportunities for collaborative work including practical experiments, problem solving and sharing ideas. Science is consistently looking at the world of the future and is at the cutting edge of shaping the world of tomorrow.
