Science in the Senior School has two pathways.
Hands on/Vocational Science will give students opportunities to develop skills in Science that they can use in their every day life. At Level 1, this ranges from Microbes and how we interact with them, to metals, electricity, heat and a Carbon based fuels investigation. At Level 2, the focus will be around Agriculture and Horticulture so that our students who would like to work on the land are developing skills and expertise to take into their chosen employment.
Academic Science is for those students who would like have a career that requires further study at either a Polytech or a University. This is a very full years course covering all three major Science strands with some students electing to take an Individualised Study Programme and learning extra Science standards through the Correspondence School. In order to take Level 2 Academic, students must have taken Level 1 Academic Science.
