‘Science is an integral part of modern culture. It stretches the imagination and creativity of young people. Its challenges are quite enormous.’

Professor Malcolm Longair, CBE, FRS, FRSE. Emeritus Jacksonian Professor of Natural Philosophy; Director of Development, Cavendish Laboratory; Professorial Fellow of Clare Hall.

Rationale for Teaching Science
Science is a body of knowledge built up through experimental testing of ideas. Science is also methodology, a practical way of finding reliable answers to questions we may ask about the world around us. Science at The Rose School is about developing pupils’ ideas and ways of working that enable them to make sense of the world in which they live through investigation, as well as using and applying process skills.
We believe that a broad and balanced science education is the entitlement of all pupils, regardless of ethnic origin, gender, class, aptitude or disability.
