AIMS AND PHILOSOPHY

Science is the pursuit and application of knowledge and understanding of the natural and social world following a systematic methodology based on evidence. We live in a society absolutely dependent on science and technology, Carl Sagan.

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. The department believes in providing equal opportunities to all students and offers courses designed to allow students to reach their full potential. We are passionate about our department and our students; we hope that we will meet your expectations in providing the very best for your son or daughter.
