The Science department comprises of Biology, Chemistry and Physics specialists with a wealth of experience. The well-equipped labs provide students with lots of opportunity for practical investigation. Whilst teaching a full curriculum of content, students are taught about changes in scientific development and real life application of the knowledge and skills they learn. Students are entered for the KS4 course which is appropriate to their ability; this may be the combined qualifications or as separate Sciences at the higher or foundation level.
