We are having an exciting year in science, including National Science week. All year groups have been or are going on science trips or are involved in talks at our school. Trips have included Doncaster Museum, Bradford Museum and Austerfield. We had some talks for years 10 and 11 about the NHS and the important work that they do. We also invited Katie Hurst from “ecoshools” to talk about recycling with Lower school, including some “upcycling” activities, (finding uses for aluminium cans). We use the laboratory at school for high quality practical work, encouraging team work and problem solving. The pupils particularly enjoy using the Bunsen burners and are brilliant at following the safety rules. We pride ourselves in offering an engaging and challenging curriculum, as you can see in the pictures.

Year 8 Enterprise –Dragons Den – Inventors and Entrepreneurs. All year 8 children took part in an entrepreneurial activity in which they had to work in small teams to develop a new video game.
