Science lessons are a journey of discovery of the natural world that can feed our students’ enquiring minds, helping to satisfy the natural curiosity with which we are born.

Our students view and value science as both a body of knowledge and a process for better understanding the world, and leave our lessons with a sense of awe and wonder at the natural world, wanting to learn more.

Students are inspired by a strong and determined team who cater for the needs of individual students and prepare them for a variety of courses and pathways.

As a practical subject, experimentation and investigation are at the heart of science learning. Students are encouraged to question what they observe in order to develop the inquiring minds needed in a scientific world.

CGP GCSE revision guides are available from our science staff. The guides cover the whole of the GCSE course and are crucial for success. We have a stock in school which means they can be collected immediately upon payment. The Combined Science guide is £5, and the Triple Science guides are £3 each (all 3 for just £9).
