In the Science Department we aim to help all students build and develop their ability to think as scientists. We firstly endeavour to help make the transition from primary to secondary school as smooth as possible and to generate enthusiasm and self-confidence in all students. Throughout both Key Stages, students study a wide variety of topics such as cells, periodic table and acids and alkalis.
