Science

The primary aim of the Science Department is to provide a broad basis of scientific knowledge for all pupils. Furthermore, we provide a more specialised science course specifically for those who wish to continue their studies in Further Education or pursue careers in Science, such as Pharmacy, Dentistry, Medicine and Engineering. Science is about curiosity, healthy scepticism and a critical evaluation of evidence. At the School, pupils take an active part in the design, carrying out and evaluation of their experiments in our well‐equipped laboratory.
