The Science Department ethos is to instil intellectual curiosity, aspiration and a love of learning in order to enable each girl to reach her full academic potential. Each girl is encouraged to discover her scientific talents through participation and contribution, and encouraged to take responsibility for her progress.
In the Science Department, Year 7 serves as an introduction to the scientific process, that is then extended into the separate sciences studied from Year 8 onwards. Girls are given many opportunities to develop their experimental skills and build their confidence in working with a range of equipment. They are provided with an environment in which they are valued and respected by celebrating effort and diligence as well as attainment.
Girls are encouraged to plan their own investigations and to answer scientific questions posed to them.
