We understand that a high quality Science education provides the foundations for understanding the world around us. Science changes lives and this is the best time to capture the girls’ interest, to develop their excitement and send them on with a delight in, and curiosity about, natural phenomena. The specific disciplines of Biology, Chemistry and Physics are interwoven at this stage, and a topic approach that may include more than one of these disciplines is undertaken.
We aim to develop a love of Science, whilst at the same time encouraging open ended thinking and fostering a desire to learn. The girls are encouraged to deepen their topic knowledge as well as develop their skills when working scientifically through hands on investigation, immersive virtual learning and extra curricular trips.
From Year 6 pupils are taught by specialist teachers using the Senior School science laboratories, this ensures a smooth transition to KS3.
