The science department thrives on good questions and our dedicated staff are always looking to turn a good idea into the next investigation. At Ardvreck we believe that a practical and multi-sensory approach to science motivates pupils of all abilities. In addressing the syllabus, our aim is for the content and ideas to be understood through positive experiences rather than learned by rote.

We make good use of specialist teachers, well-resourced science laboratories, outside visits and local resources. With its broad range of content and activities, science at Ardvreck promotes confidence, teamwork, independent study skills and responsibility.

Today’s school children will grow up in a world increasingly influenced by advances in science and technology. At Ardvreck we prepare pupils of all abilities to perform in future assessments and participate in tomorrow’s democratic process using skills built on a solid grounding in scientific methodology.
