The study of Science at Ormiston Latimer is relevant and delivered contextually whilst developing investigative, numerical and analytical skills. All students study the three disciplines; Biology the study of organisms & their interdependence, Chemistry the study of matter, and Physics the study of fundamental interactions. From within these three disciplines, the ‘big ideas’ in science are distilled.
Key concepts and topics are revisited to allow for gaps in knowledge to be identified and progress to be made. Our Science scheme aims to educate learners in a way that will support not only their short term but longer term outcomes. This is done through practical and theory work. Discussion of current affairs and every day phenomena create interest in science and impart knowledge that will enable learners to make and maintain both a positive outlook and achieve in Science.
