Science

Our Science lessons help to satisfy our student’s natural curiosity about the world around them and broaden their enquiring minds.

Science is a practical subject, with investigation and experimentation core parts of lessons. We want to kindle a sense of awe at the natural world in children and encourage them to develop a questioning mind.
