Why do we learn Science?

Individual and unique:

We can show students that no matter what their own personal unique interests are, science is of value to them. Science itself is a unique subject. Every student will find individual aspects of science that they can excel at. This gives them confidence and an understanding that their own individuality is a strength, especially when students with different unique talents come together and work in a collegiate way.


Children are taught in purpose-built labs from the age of 9; we focus our teaching of the National Curriculum through practical work and investigative work. This means the children are engaged and this enables them to learn and to find their wonderful.


The science curriculum is designed to deepen children’s understanding. Students learn the majority of their science through practical investigations with small steps building on previous skills and knowledge. During these children often have their WOW moments: These moments provide society with our scientists of the future.


Science learning is enriched and supported with outdoor learning, trips and external visitors give a fullness to the students’ learning experience. This opens theirs minds to 21st century skills and potential career paths.
