We use a variety of teaching methods to ensure that students are fully engaged, actively involved and experience an enjoyable learning environment at all times. These include hands on practical work, active learning tasks, project work and model making.
The science faculty is a thriving and active part of the Roundwood Park School community. We support our students in building their Science Capital from the excitement of their first lesson in Year 7 all the way through to studying science A-Levels. Students really enjoy developing their practical skills through a range of experiments and investigations, allowing them to discover key concepts and ignite a passion for science. Teachers use a variety of research-led activities to help share their passion of the subject, whilst instilling a firm grasp of the methodology and experimental design that is at the centre of al good scientific research.
The learning is not confined to the classroom, with ever popular Science and STEM clubs giving endless opportunities to inspire. A variety of trips and learning opportunities take students far and wide, including Biology Field trips, visits to the CERN laboratories and even studying Whale sharks in Mozambique as part of the World Challenge!
