Our overriding departmental aim is to use teaching methods and resources that allow ALL pupils to have access to Science, to feel valued and to experience success and enjoyment in their work.
To maintain and stimulate pupil curiosity, interest and enjoyment in Science.
To enable pupils to understand the language and logic of Science, in order to encourage a methodical and practical approach to problem-solving.
To develop a range of personal qualities such as determination, initiative, cooperation and independence.
To allow pupils to develop informed opinions and to be able to support them by reasonable arguments.
To nurture an appreciation in pupils to see the relevance of Science to citizenship in modern society and everyday life.
