About the school:
* This is a very successful and lively department. We offer both Combined and Triple Science at GCSE and we have a large number of students staying on to take Science subjects in the Sixth Form. We also attract many new students from other schools into Year 12 to take Biology, Chemistry and Physics at A Level. There are currently twelve staff in Science teaching. There are Teaching and Learning Responsibility posts for Head of Science (Biology), Head of Physics and Head of Chemistry.
* The science department is well supported by Technicians in each department. There are seven well equipped laboratories.

The Curriculum:
* Key Stage 3 - In Years 7 and 8 are taught Science in their form groups. In year 9 the group sizes are smaller. During the course of Years 7, 8 and 9 two topic units each of Biology, Chemistry and Physics are taught. The school have developed their own schemes of work based on the Pearson 'Exploring Science' units which they have used since 2022. They provide a varied and challenging course with plenty of practical work.
