Science develops students as scientifically literate inquirers who are able to think critically and creatively to solve problems, evaluate evidence and make decisions. We engage and inspire students by showing how the understanding of many contemporary issues requires a grasp of fundamental scientific ideas, as well as encouraging a love of the intertwined academic disciplines in their own right.
There is a strong emphasis on practical work, the acquisition and development of thinking skills, and learning through discovery coupled with academic rigour. We firmly believe that showing is better than telling and doing is better than showing. Practical work is carried out in our recently refurbished laboratories, and Computer Science is taught in a dedicated computer lab.
