Science education provides the knowledge and the keys to understanding the physical world. The goal of this curriculum is to teach students to develop skills such as critical thinking, collecting and analysing data, investigation and problem solving.

It encourages pupils to challenge, ask questions and train their perseverance when concepts learnt get challenging.

They get insights into how their body works, how the mind processes, while learning about the mechanism of the universe and the evolution of life. As the world is changing around them, science education also shows how students can impact their surroundings by invoking change.

This curriculum provides regular opportunities for practical work outdoor and in laboratory environment, backed by robust theories.

As they move through the curriculum – working individually and within teams – students will learn how to value the application of science in their everyday life.

If outreach is at the core of year 7’s curriculum, the application of mathematics is slowly introduced each year. The student’s journey starts by learning about the fundamentals of sciences. It ends in performing more complex scientific experiments with deeper understanding of the scientific processes.

By the end of Year 11, students should have the opportunity to gain national qualifications in science, either Entry Level or GCSEs.
