Through our science specialism we aim to increase students‘ interest and achievement in the sciences.
Through an enquiry based approach, we develop their skills, knowledge and understanding of the world around them. Science is delivered by an innovative team of staff in a suite of laboratories newly refurbished to the highest of standards.
We have established a challenging science curriculum to meet the needs of all students, with large numbers following triple science at GCSE and many students opting to study sciences at A-level standard in the Sixth-Form. We aim to further increase the number of students entering science, engineering and maths (STEM) courses at undergraduate level through our work as a science college.
There are many additional activities offered as a result of specialist status with clubs in astronomy, amateur radio and the environment as examples. There is also a strong science and engineering club with projects involving rocket making and racing mini formula one cars. The extended community programme of science lessons and lectures add an extra dimension to interest in the sciences.
The Science Faculty are very environmentally aware and support a Green Policy throughout the school to ensure we are as energy efficient and resourceful as possible.
Excellent working relationships between students and staff, together with teachers’ strong subject knowledge, result in a very positive learning environment.Ofsted
