Our intention is that students leave their Science education with a developed and mature appreciation of the natural world and the order of the universe, and as articulate citizen scientists.
As students progress, their knowledge and understanding of the laws and form of nature deepens, and with this their ability to explain and analyse the evidence we see. As their knowledge grows, our students are encouraged to retain their natural inquisitive nature and curiosity.
They will develop skills that facilitate this transition: the ability to think about problems and evidence critically; the ability to analyse and interpret information; and the skills to evaluate arguments. Students will learn to design rigorous investigations and develop fluent practical skill, and become literate and numerate scientists who can draw meaning and pattern from data.
They will have to work productively with their peers and adults to achieve this, becoming comfortable team-players who add value to their group. Necessarily, their resilience will grow as they develop the discipline required to master scientific concepts.
In future, our students will take their place as responsible and collaborative adult citizens in society, and as proponents of the scientific capital that helps to propel society forwards. They will leave us with up-to-date knowledge and skills attractive to employers, and pathways to careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering and maths firmly open to them.
