The science teachers here love Science, but then we would, wouldn't we!
We have four magnificent new laboratories, spacious and well-equipped. To us science is fun, exciting and educational. Work is easy because we enjoy it so much.
In Year 7 all boys study a General Science Course. This course examines large topics, such as Geology, Weather and Electric Circuits. The aim is to experience the world and to combine this with scientific demonstrations of the simple principles which lie behind it.
In Year 8 the pupils move onto the three separate sciences. We are fortunate here to have specialists in all three sciences. The pupils respond as much to the teacher as to the subject. This helps them decide when it comes to choosing which subjects to take to GCSE. Many go on to study all three Sciences to GCSE level.
In Year 9 the pupils may chose one or more of the three separate sciences: Physics, Chemistry and Biology. We study OCR Science specifications.
In all three sciences we study essential topics at the beginning, and then make an early start on the GCSE course. Results are strikingly good in all three.
Again at A level, the three separate sciences are taught by specialists. This gives an atmosphere of unmistakeable happiness in the laboratories. The key to this is that the pupils are studying the subjects they love with teachers that they admire and look up to. The atmosphere in a sixth form lesson is one of brilliance, friendliness and mutual discovery.
