In science, our mission is to deliver an engaging curriculum that focuses on development of both science knowledge and practical skills. Our curriculum will enable students to learn within a clear and progressive framework, develop new skills through a variety of interesting contexts, develop a rich and deep science subject knowledge and understand what they are doing well and how they need to improve.
We are committed to raising standards of achievement and promoting a lifelong culture of learning through an education in science. These crucial aspects of our teaching will provide the knowledge and skills required for high achievement at GCSE. We also strive to build engagement with STEM and to raise levels of science capital amongst young people, through discussion of careers and linking lessons to real life world issues.
Our key aim in science is to fully engage all students in order to help them to identify and understand the science in everyday life and the world around them. We seek to provide learners with a variety of transferable skills, gained through our diverse science curriculum, that can be utilised in the workplace across a range of careers.
We endeavour to evaluate and develop our curriculum as an ongoing process, to ensure that the knowledge and skills of students are developed in a logical and incremental way, which is vital for a thorough understanding of complex scientific concepts. We seek to inspire, engage and support young people in their science education, including supporting students to understand the careers possibilities within and from STEM subjects.
