Science is critical in developing pupils’ understanding of the world around them and beyond. It enables them to explain everyday processes and facilitates the acquisition of key problem solving, teamwork and critical thinking skills required to prepare for their life beyond St John Fisher.
The mission of the Science department is to develop inquisitive and knowledgeable problem solvers, who are numerate and mathematically literate. We aim to do this through a broad and balanced spiral curriculum, where fundamental principles are revisited regularly to embed learning and understanding. We offer a variety of extra-curricular activities, to engage pupils with their Science education and develop Scientists of the future.
