Aims for the Department

  • To provide a well-rounded Science education that covers the requirements of the National Curriculum and prepares students for life as well as successful completion of two or three Science GCSEs.
  • To encourage a lifelong interest in a diversity of sciences for all students regardless of gender, race or economic background.
  • To provide opportunities for students to engage in scientific activities outside the classroom.

Interactive Learning

  • All classrooms have either interactive whiteboards and projectors or touchscreen TVs; this helps our teaching staff to engage the students with modern technology in the learning process.
  • Students will be given access to Active Learn, a resource provided by Edexcel, to allow them access to online texts and revision resources throughout their school life.
