Science is an ever-changing subject; not a day goes by without some scientific discovery or issue being reported in the news.  We try to incorporate this important aspect of the subject into our teaching, and in doing so inform and encourage the next generation of scientists. 

We want our students to be adept at applying their understanding in different contexts and our excellent facilities ensure that they also have opportunity to develop their practical and investigative skills. We are supported by four experienced technicians who ensure the smooth running of eight well-equipped laboratories and five preparation rooms; two laboratories were refurbished in 2010, we have recently completed the refurbishment of one of our physics laboratories as well as a Chemistry lab refurbishment in 2017.


BiologyChemistry and Physics are taught by specialist teachers at all levels (click subject links to see more).
