Humans are innately curious. Science as a 'way of knowing' is used by people to explore and explain their experiences of phenomena of the universe. It is a process for constructing new knowledge. Science is a part of the human quest for understanding and wisdom and reflects human wonder about the world. The study of science as a 'way of knowing' and a 'way of doing' can help students reach deeper understandings of the world.
Science at St Andrew’s encourages students to explore the world around them and make links with their knowledge to encourage deeper understandings. Taught by a dedicated team of teachers, many of whom have worked in Science and Engineering before coming to teach, we offer well equipped labs and our technicians are able to offer an excellent support for both students and teachers to ensure that the practical experience is the best it can be.
All students study general Science following the National Curriculum in Year 7-9. Our Year 10 students are able to study a number of different Science options before specialisation in Year 11 & 12. Each year more than half of our Year 12 students choose to continue their study of Science at University!
