The Science Department strives to provide a personalised and innovative curriculum that clearly links the applications of Science to real life.  Students can follow a range of pathways, both academic and vocational, that support them in achieving the best possible outcomes to support them in their next steps.  The curriculum places a high value on hands on experimental activities to allow students to gain transferable skills, especially in analysis and evaluation.

The Science curriculum is enriched through a range of activities each year including:
·    Yr 10 residential at Oxford University
·    KS3 and 4 Bolton West Science Challenges
·    Salters Chemistry Lectures
·    The Physics Olympics
·    Science Made Simple events
·    STEM Club

Plus a wide range of other activities, many fully funded through the Ogden Trust Partnership.
