Shavington Academy Science Department
At Shavington Academy, in the science department, we encourage pupils to learn through investigation and discovery. Using practical experimentation and research to develop a depth in scientific knowledge, building transferable skills we need later in life.
The three sciences; biology, chemistry and physics are studied equally, and we offer a separate science course at KS4.
Pupils will examine topics from the building blocks of life, molecules and matter, to the laws of physics, which govern the world we know. These topics are revisited over 5 years to build a high level of understanding for each individual pupil.
We also discuss important current developments to relate learning to real life and how science can impact us all.
