Science

Pupils are encouraged to develop skills in analysing, drawing conclusions and evaluating, as well as using scientific equipment across the three areas of Science: Biology, Chemistry and Physics.

Development of independent research skills is a key component of the curriculum, as well as understanding how to present and interpret data.

Pupils are given a sound grounding in safety within the laboratory environment before beginning to explore topics such as states of matter, particle theory, periodic table, energy resources, life processes and the human body.

Throughout their time in the Prep School, pupils develop their scientific skills to enable them to prepare for the Common Entrance Examinations, as well as giving a sound grounding in topics they will be presented with at GCSE level when they move to their chosen senior school.
