From Monday 29 November, face coverings should be worn in communal areas in all settings by students in year 7 and above, staff and visitors, unless they are exempt.

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.
