Science Department

We encourage speculation, creative thought and thorough analysis of evidence to create rigorous scholars

science aligned

The Science department provides an exciting, innovative and engaging approach to active learning for our pupils at Cardinal Wiseman. Pupils learn through investigative practical approaches, allowing them to discover and investigate the scientific world around them. We take particular care in preparing pupils for aspects of the new GCSEs including Maths in Science and helping them to learn how to apply their knowledge in the real world.
The department is well equipped with five laboratories, all with wireless internet access and the use of a visualizer. Two of the laboratories are equipped with Interactive White Boards (IWB). There are also two preparation rooms operated by 2 laboratory technicians.
We teach the KS3 National Curriculum in Years 7 & 8. In year 9 pupils begin GCSE study. They either go on to study 3 separate sciences or AQA GCSE Synergy. All science lessons are based on scientific enquiry and the development of practical skills.
