Curriculum Leader: Sarah Henderson


The science department is extremely well resourced, supported by an experienced technician. We have five well equipped laboratories. The department consists of four full-time teachers and all teaching groups are set according to ability.

All students in year 7 and year 8 study the core principles in each of the three science disciplines. From year 9, all students study the GCSE syllabus. The department offers two GCSE routes, combined science or triple science (biology, chemistry and physics).

Many students leave us to pursue careers or to go on to higher education where science qualifications are important.
