Our department is made up of a dedicated team of experienced professionals eager to inspire, challenge and facilitate learning for our students. At KS3 and KS4 we deliver carefully planned Science lessons, covering a breadth of skills relating to biology, chemistry and physics.
Studying science will broaden your understanding of the world around you, may allow you to influence and develop accepted scientific knowledge, and will give you the skills needed to approach most matters in a reasoned and analytical manner. Science will open up a variety of further education and career options for your future providing you with skills that will make you very employable.
