Subject Lead: Miss C Wilson

Subject Lead’s email:

Teachers: Mr Simon Price, Miss Laura Curley, Mr Rhys Evans, Mr Mat Tonks, Mr Dayo Otunga, Mr Cyrille Solo, Mr Howard Gardener and Ms Marsha Blissett.

Vision: To encourage students to share a passion and love for science that enables them to describe, explain and observe science phenomena. Students to be enriched with knowledge from the three scientific disciplines; biology, chemistry and physics that underpin the functions of the individual, the world and the universe. By exploring knowledge of the three disciplines students will grasp an awareness and understanding of the world in which they live – from the molecular level, organism level through to the environmental level
