Faculty of Science

Brief description of Faculty

The Faculty of Science comprises Physics, Chemistry and Biology.  Our aim is to ensure that every pupil achieves their full potential in Science.  Inspiring pupils for further study of Science beyond school is one of our main goals.  We aim to ensure lessons are as stimulating and practically-based as possible, to spark a keen interest in Science in our pupils.

We are very well-equipped with 9 full-size laboratories and a small laboratory for work with senior pupils.  We are supported by a full-time Science Technician who also has her own preparation room.

Class sizes are restricted to 20 pupils in Science.

We are very fortunate to have access to a bookable class set of iPads and new laptop computers to allow pupils to employ digital literacy in their Science work.

We also have a thriving STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) Club.  The club meets on Wednesdays at lunchtime.  New members are always warmly welcomed.

We hope the additional information in these pages answers any questions you may have about learning in the Science Faculty, but please do not hesitate to contact us should you require any further information about the Faculty.
