Science

Our Vision:

Together we challenge, support and achieve.

We are a forward- thinking faculty with high expectations of our students and staff. Our aim is to   provide a happy, safe, caring, tolerant, inclusive, respectful and stimulating environment in which students are recognised and achieve their full potential. We want to prepare our students for a rapidly changing world by equipping them with critical thinking skills, creativity skills, innovative and enquiring skills. Developing these skills is integral for students to achieve success for today and prepare for the future.

In Science we are committed to raising standards, accelerating progress and providing opportunities for our students to embark on careers in engineering, industry and medical applications. We want to intrinsically motivate our students to have a desire for knowledge and acknowledge that we can work, learn and achieve together.
