Hypothesis

We predict that every child at St Christopher's will develop a strong sense of enquiry in Science which will be maintained throughout their further education.  
 
Aim

We aim to excite, engage and stimulate the interest of the children at all levels and in all aspects of Science. When children reach Year 8 we aim to prepare them thoroughly whether it be for Common Entrance or Scholarship level papers.

Method

1.  Employ a ‘hands on’ approach to Science, making regular use of the brand new laboratory.
2.  Encourage independent thinking by empowering the pupils and providing them with the tools to investigate problems and find the answers.
3.  Challenge all children to achieve their very best whilst maintaining their enthusiasm for, and enjoyment of, Science.

Results

We have a long tradition of extremely strong Common Entrance and Academic Scholarship results.

Conclusion

Science is a rapidly developing and constantly evolving area of the curriculum. We are an innovative department who embrace change and are always looking for ways to improve our pupils’ learning experience. We have high expectations of the children and strive for academic excellence alongside nurturing the children's love of Science.
