The science department has a dedicated and supportive ethos with an unrivalled sense of team spirit. We are committed to teaching and learning and aim to promote innovative practice, both in terms of our teaching and our use of practical activities to enhance learning.
The science team have a collective commitment to raise aspirations and stimulate and maintain students’ curiosity, interest and enjoyment in science. We are committed to providing an exciting varied and challenging experience of science for all students.
We place particular emphasis on learning through practical investigations and on collaborative learning. We also place huge importance on developing independent, analytical and critical thinking. In short we aim to inspire and enthuse students and to motivate them to continue into scientific careers once they have left Astrea Academy Woodfields.
