Science Welcome

The Bemrose science curriculum strives to produce young adults of the future who are capable of questioning and interpreting information to make sense of the world around them. We encourage pupils to think scientifically, developing their critical thinking skills and fostering an enthusiasm to find out more. We aim to develop pupils with an enquiring mind and encourage a healthy scepticism and to ask the question ‘why?’ in order for them to make good judgements about what they see on social media and the news and in their everyday lives. We aim to develop their confidence in expressing their opinions clearly in a range of situations, being able to draw on their breadth of scientific knowledge to support their arguments. We want students to be able to make sense of the world around them, to understand how science applies to their lives and for it to open doors to a wider variety of potential careers.

The aim is to teach them ‘powerful’ knowledge, established by generations of scientists through careful and painstaking scientific enquiry. This will enable pupils to understand core scientific concepts and skills which will help them to compete academically with their peers across the country, thus enabling greater social mobility and will inspire a lifelong interest in science. We want them to understand that science is relevant to their lives and the skills and knowledge they can develop in science will allow them to be successful. Pupils will develop practical skills, bringing theory to life, fostering the scientists of the future and we encourage them to see science as a future career choice and believe that they can be the next Nuclear Physicists, Environmental Surveyors or Chemical Engineers.
