Science is a highly valued subject at the College with the experienced team achieving a strong progress score in the summer 2018 series. A large number of our students opt to study Triple Science at GCSE with subsequent high progression through to A Level. Outside of the classroom the team have a strong commitment to enhancing the curriculum. In 2018 students had opportunities to participate in a range of events including the Faraday Challenge, the Turing Cryptography Competition, and the Salters Chemistry Festival. Each year the team runs an exciting Science Week to celebrate the importance of this subject.
