Science

An interest in Science is promoted within the school at a very early age.

Children in the infant department are encouraged to explore Science-related topics under the supervision of their class teacher. School pupils have the benefit of specialist teachers and access to a fully-equipped laboratory. The curriculum includes the topics outlined in the ‘National Curriculum’ but the delivery of the key concepts is of utmost importance and priority. The success of the course is based on a fine balance of theory and practical work designed to develop understanding while promoting the pupils' spirit of enquiry. Pupils of all abilities are encouraged to think ‘outside the box’ and confidently question, discuss and evaluate using obtained evidence and scientific language to explain their ideas and findings. By the time pupils leave the Preparatory School, they should have a sound scientific foundation on which to build an inherent understanding of how Science is applied in the world around them.
