Science:

“Science is being able to take absolute delight, in being proved incorrect”
Professor Brian Cox

In Science at Swanwick School and Sports College, we want our pupils to question and challenge the world around them. We want pupils to look at the world around them, and ask; How? Why? When? What?

We want to equip pupils with the investigative skills in order to answer their own questions, and to make, test, and review their hypothesis. If they are proved incorrect, we want them to accept and understand why this is the case.

We will provide pupils with opportunities to develop their interests in Science. Regular educational visits will provide pupils with an understanding of how Science is at the core of industry in the UK. Opportunities to discover careers in Science will be provided.

Throughout the school pupils follow the national curriculum with all having access to at least 2 lessons per week. We have a progressive curriculum with pupils able to access OCR Entry Level and GCSE certificates in Key Stage 4. Activities in Science will be broad. Progress will be measured in numerous ways and feedback given to pupils regularly. Our full curriculum can be seen on the curriculum page of the website.

 

Above all, Science will be fun, exciting and engaging.
