“What we know is a drop, what we don't know is an ocean.”

Isaac Newton

Science is all around us and can help to explain many of the phenomena we encounter in the natural and technological world. Science plays an important part in developing a pupils’ intellectual and problem solving skills. Qualifications in Science can lead to a vast range of opportunities.

In the Science department we wish to encourage pupils to take an interest in, and ask questions about, what goes on in the world around us. We aim to help pupils develop their abilities to think critically, solve problems, work effectively together and communicate their ideas clearly.

“To me there has never been a higher source of earthly honour or distinction than that connected with advances in science.”

Isaac Newton
