Subject Overview

Our aim is to provide an exciting and challenging curriculum for all of our students enabling them to achieve the very best academic attainment and progress.  Our lessons aim to challenge pupils to become independent, effective learners. Pupils are regularly given complex problem solving activities which require pupils to work collectively and to communicate with each other scientifically.  Pupils regularly analyse and evaluate their work and reflect upon ways to further improve to achieve or surpass their academic targets.
