The aim of the Science department is to make learning about how things work interesting and exciting and to make all students enthusiastic about learning scientific ideas, encouraging the scientists of the future. We want to develop all students’ scientific skills and in an ever developing scientific world, ensure that all our students can embrace new ideas and understanding of the world around them.
The goals of the Science department are that students will:
- Realise their potential through the promotion of high academic standards and expectations
- Learn to consider their impact on the environment both for their benefit and the benefit of those around them
- Promote science as an academic subject, as well as its place in history, society, culture, politics and technology
- Develop those skills, such as questioning and analysis, which will prove useful in later life.
