Within the Science Faculty, each discipline is encouraged to flourish and make its own identifiable contribution. Currently, Science is taught by one teacher per form in Years 7 and 8 as a combined course following a KS3 programme of study.

In addition, a number of students take part in the Physics Olympiad.

The excellent results achieved by the department speak for themselves, but they also contribute to the popularity of the Physics post-16, with the department regularly achieving 100% A* - C at GCSE; over 40% A*/A in A level Physics and 50% 7/6/5 for Higher Level IB. At present, around 80 students, both boys and girls, are studying Physics at sixth form level, with majority taking A level, a similar number is expected each year.

The Science Faculty comprises twenty-one full and part-time teaching and technical staff. All members of the Faculty are encouraged to play a full role in its development (e.g. contributing to the writing and revising schemes of work). The Physics Department currently comprises a Head of Department and three full time physicists, and dedicated technician support.
