Science, where the senses and the intellect meet …

Science is about bridging the world of the senses – the tangible, the audible, the visible – with the world of the intellect – the far reaching patterns of abstract concepts which allow us to impose order and system on what we perceive through the senses. The College believes that both piers of the bridge should be buttressed. Through a rich program of practical activities the students are exposed to as much real experience of see, hear and touch scientific phenomena as possible. On the other pier, the College is committed to a careful and scrupulous teaching of scientific concepts, informed both by historical awareness of their genesis and the determination to impart ideas in a clear, rigorous, but accessible way.

All three traditional school sciences are taught separately from Year 7:  Physics, Chemistry and Biology.  Boys are prepared to sit IGCSE exams from Cambridge in all three subjects. The three Science subjects are also available at A-level.
