Which subjects are in our faculty?
Science is a core subject, and all students must study the subject in some format until the end of year 11. Learning science enables our students to understand the world around them and their role in it – the importance of science to society and why it is important to be an active and questioning member of that society. The study of science supports the development of skills such as planning and conducting investigations, gathering information through investigations and other research, teamwork, and evaluating your findings.
Core practical lessons bring science to life and emphasise the relevance of science in everyday life. Assessments are designed to allow all students to succeed and vary from written examinations to designing and carrying out investigations.
