We encourage the girls to think like scientists and to be curious about their world, both the natural and physical aspects. We provide a stimulating environment in which the emphasis is on ‘doing’, ‘exploring’ and ‘questioning’. Our science lab is a hive of exploration and learning where girls work collaboratively to develop their understanding of scientific concepts. However, scientific exploration is not confined to the classroom as the children are encouraged to make exciting discoveries wherever they are. The highlight of the classroom based curriculum is Science Week held annually in the Spring term. The whole Junior School is involved in a variety of activities.
Visiting scientists are invited to enrich our lessons. They are often parents or may be STEM ambassadors from industry or science road-shows such as the ‘Bristol Explorer Dome’. The girls are taken on relevant visits to museums and the Botanic Garden in Oxford and further afield to London, Bristol and Birmingham.
