Science

A high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Science stimulates and excites pupil’s curiosity about phenomena and events in the world around them. It also satisfies this curiosity with knowledge. As science links direct practical experience with ideas, it can engage learners at many levels.

BSY’s Secondary School Science department follows the vision of the British Schools Foundation to provide a truly world class education for its pupils with regards to Biology, Chemistry and Physics.

The Secondary campus offers well-equipped laboratories enabling the department to focus as much as possible on learning through investigation and experimentation. From Year 7 onwards, pupils are encouraged to develop their knowledge, skills and most importantly to enjoy their science to develop a lifelong interest in science.

The department follows the English National Curriculum at Key Stage Three and where appropriate enhances the curriculum to further challenge pupils, encouraging scientific curiosity, skills and understanding. This enhancement will be provided through quality lesson planning and choosing interesting and fun assignments and practical investigations for pupils to complete.

The department provides a tailored Science curriculum for Key Stages 4 and beyond as the Secondary School continues to grow from strength to strength. It is the department’s aim to give its pupils the confidence to explore Science with a real interest and hopefully create some of the world’s future scientists.
