Science

Science touches all our lives, whether we are looking into the furthest reaches of space or at the tiny microbes that damage our health. A study of Science involves addressing huge moral issues, such as climate change, energy production, food and overpopulation, health and how we better use our dwindling resources. At Broughton the intention is that all pupils will have a good understanding of Science which will enable them to make sense of and adapt to a rapidly changing world.

Approaches to Teaching and Learning in Science

With our broad specialism in Science, the department are well-placed to deliver lessons that are designed to meet the needs, abilities and aspirations of every individual pupil.

Science lessons are vibrant, lively and fun. All teachers frequently use a wide range of innovative, imaginative resources and teaching strategies to ensure active participation in every lesson. Teachers model, demonstrate and prepare well-organised and safe practical activities. The department are passionate about Science and this enthusiasm allows us to provide opportunities for pupils to explore the scientific world which surrounds them.
