We intend to build the scientists and informed citizens of the future. Science consists of the study of Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
Biology is the study of life. We study Biology to better understand how living things work and what makes them, which helps us to understand and care for ourselves and our planet. Biology can lead to careers in healthcare, conservation, forensic science and business.
Chemistry is the study of how substances interact with their environment. We study Chemistry to understand how materials are structured, and how they will behave in different situations, which helps us to create and understand the materials we use in our everyday lives. Chemistry can lead to careers in chemical engineering, healthcare, pharmacy, forensic science and business.
Physics is the study of the rules that govern the Universe. We study Physics to understand what the Universe is made of and how it works, which helps us to answer big questions about why we exist, as well as create new technologies. Physics can lead to careers in space science, engineering, healthcare, energy and business.
We aim for students to leave us with a secure knowledge of a wide range of scientific concepts, an understanding of the importance of science in society and an ability to engage with societal discourse about science.
We aim to provide students with the practical and analytical skills necessary to study science at a higher level should they choose to, and with the study skills and grades in national exams that they need to do so successfully.
