Science is taught in twelve purpose built laboratories each with an interactive whiteboard and fully equipped with class sets of resources.

In 2017, 82% of our students gained 2 good grades in Science, whilst A*-C for Additional Science was 83%. In Biology, Chemistry and Physics, A*/A results averaged 57%.
