Science is the driving force behind a huge array of emerging technologies that are impacting increasingly upon our daily lives.
We rely on science to solve many of society’s problems and to enhance our enjoyment of life. We want to teach students about the concepts behind these innovations and help them appreciate its application in everyday life. We want to equip students with the skills to analyse and evaluate evidence and draw conclusions independently from data. We would like students to develop good practical skills and be able to assess risks effectively. Our aim is to incorporate practical work into as many lessons across KS3 and KS4 as possible. This will improve students’ enjoyment of the subject as well teaching them valuable skills in the process. We aim to support all students, in whichever pathway they follow, to achieve their full potential and leave school with a clearer understanding of the world around us.
