Science

The aims of science in the Junior School can be broadly divided into two categories:

  • to stimulate pupils' curiosity in the world around them and encourage critical and creative thinking, applying scientific understanding;
  • to create a foundation for the study of science in the Senior School.

To fulfil these aims, pupils are given the opportunity to acquire both factual knowledge and the skills of scientific enquiry: identifying questions that can be addressed scientifically; planning and carrying out experiments; evaluating data; and recognising the limitations of their own and others' work.

This is achieved through an exciting, investigative four year course which takes place in a large, well resourced science room.

I like Science because we get to do lots of experiments.
