Aims of Science:

"Our aim is to ensure that every pupil is safe, engaged, makes outstanding progress and grows to have a spiritual, moral and ethical view of the world." (Ms. S. Teare, Faculty Leader) 

The study of science fires pupils' curiosity about phenomena in the world around them and offers opportunities to find explanations.  It engages learners at many levels, linking direct practical experience with scientific ideas.  Experimentation and modelling are used to develop and evaluate explanations, encouraging critical and creative thought.  Pupils learn how knowledge and understanding in science are rooted in evidence.  They discover how scientific ideas contribute to technological change - affecting industry, business and medicine and improving quality of life.  They trace the development of science worldwide and recognise its cultural significance.  They learn to question and discuss issues that may affect their own lives, the directions of societies and the future of the world.
