The science department is comprised of seven teaching staff and one technician all working collaboratively to ensure students achieve their full potential. Students are encouraged to investigate the world around them and question why things happen. We aim to ensure that all enjoy the practical nature of the subject and are encouraged to practice their scientific skills and techniques. The department makes sure that all students have a good knowledge and understanding of science through motivational, fun and engaging lessons.
