Facilities and Resources:

The Science Department has 14 purpose built laboratories and all have interactive whiteboard.  We have 30 laptop computers with a wireless internet connection and a suite of 20 computers.  This means students are able to enjoy animations and simulations of Science experiments as part of lessons.  One of our Science teachers is a Leading Practitioner and visits other schools to share good practice and participates in attainment raising initiatives arranged by the Science consultants.

We have extensive resources available to our students, such as the library is regularly used along with the support of the librarian and the ICT staff to support the student's access to resources independently.
