We strive to provide the very best resources and facilities in this the largest department in the school comprising of 9 fully equipped laboratories as well as an I.T. room. The department is extremely well served with technical help from science technicians. The departments real strength lies in how it cherishes and develops the talents of every individual in the laboratory. Pupils are actively encouraged to develop their science skills through investigative experimental work.
