Welcome to the Science Department
Science is the subject that pushes our society forward. From the development of new medical drugs,
the exploration of space, to the development of the latest technology, it is the foundation of
the world we live in.
Our highly qualified science teachers have a passion for the subject that we share with our pupils
every lesson. We do this during practical investigations, giving pupils both
the understanding of the world in which they live and
the analytical skills that will help them throughout their life.
At Pittville School our five year science curriculum is driven by three principles:
Development of pupils into scientifically literate citizens. To enable pupils to understand the
world around them and the impact of scientific development upon this, leading
them to create their own views on global challenges, such as global warming and the spread of disease.
Embedding an enjoyment of Science. Pupils will develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about
natural phenomena to inspire them into a future STEM career.
Achievement of high quality qualifications. To empower pupils to obtain their best
possible Science GCSEs to give them the greatest opportunities for their further education and careers.
