Science

Curriculum Intent

Our aim is to provide students with the knowledge of interactions between biological, chemical and physical systems that enables them to explain everyday experiences. Students will gain key skills which will facilitate their investigation of scientific ideas both theoretically and practically, as well as through extra-curricular events, encouraging a healthy curiosity about the nature of the universe.  

Science at Grace Academy will foster an approach that allows our students to recognise the diversity of scientists and promote and ignite aspirations for a career in a scientific field. 

 We endeavour to empower students with the knowledge required to continue questioning the world around them beyond their Grace journey.
