Science stimulates and excites pupils’ curiosity about the world around them. It also satisfies this curiosity with knowledge because science links direct practical experience with ideas. It can engage learners at many levels.

In our science work, we consciously try to encourage the development of skills and attitudes which include co-operation, curiosity, perseverance, open-mindedness and a respect for evidence. We also try to encourage independence in thinking, responsibility, and sensitivity to living and non-living environments as well as a willingness to tolerate uncertainty.
