Science Intent Statement

At Abbey Park School our aim is to inspire the scientist of tomorrow, promote the importance of an independent mind, encourage curious thinkers and build the skills required to effectively question concepts and communicate ideas.

Our department provides high quality lessons to our students covering the core knowledge of Biology, Chemistry a Physics. We ensure students experience of a wide range of science knowledge and develop their practical skills to prepare them for exams and future careers.

During the five-year curriculum students regularly rotate between the science disciplines, linking key concepts and developing a deeper understanding of how the world around them works.

For GCSE we provide both Combined Trilogy Science and Separate Science courses to stretch, challenge and support all abilities ensuring pathways to future careers and goals can be achieved.
