Subject Vision

We are a fully committed team that provides and enriches personalised opportunities, to allow all pupils to develop Scientific skills and mind-sets.

In doing so, pupils appreciate and respect their progress to help them achieve excellent outcomes in Science.

In Science, we expect each student to be an open-thinker and to have the confidence to be inquisitive, explore and investigate further, based from the knowledge acquired in class. In doing so, build a mind-set that allows skills to be developed continuously.

We expect students to:

  • Read wider e.g. new developments in genetics since the discovery of the human genome project

  • Wider researchers e.g. the effect of drugs on the body

  • Solve problems e.g. atom economics

  • Develop interview skills e.g. through STEM activities

  • Have the confidence to role play e.g. model states of matter

  • Support each other e.g.  student leaders

  • Work as a team e.g. investigating component particles

  • Develop their debating skills e.g. ethics of STEM cells

  • Be aware of global issues e.g. the effects of global warming

  • Develop enterprise skills e.g. investigating the best washing powder

  • Be competent in IT e.g. presenting research digitally

  • Prepared for regular challenges e.g. Various PAG investigations
