KS4 Science

In science we equip our students with the character, skills, and knowledge they need to be successful at university and in a career of their choice. We achieve this through our day to day interactions between staff and students through implementing our virtues mission. In the West Midlands we are in the centre of the nation’s biggest growth sector of engineering providing countless opportunities for further education and employment within the scientific field. We are surrounded by top universities such as The University of Birmingham, Aston and Warwick providing some of the best courses and opportunities our nation has to offer for our young people. We strongly believe in upskilling our community to then serve our community evidenced through student progression over the past few years into the field of science, we have provided opportunities for residentials at Cambridge and indeed the staff teaching within the faculty are from our local community.

intro part 2

In our Academy our students learn through investigating, observing and experimentation which allows them to learn about life, environmental, and physical sciences to develop their scientific understanding of the material world and advancements in science and technology.
