All pupils in the junior school follow a balanced science course.  As Science is a practical subject, the class sizes are reduced to ensure that all pupils can safely take an active approach to learning. The Key Stage 3 Science course is based around the 3 disciplines of Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Pupils also enjoy a wealth of extra-curricular activities. Whether they are improving the school environment through their involvement in the Eco-group or working on STEAM projects for national competitions, there is always a busy team of students enjoying learning Science outside of class time.

The Science Department recently built its  very own Polytunnel! Click this HERE to check it out!
