The Science Department at Aldwickbury aims to create the following outcomes:
- Boys who are naturally curious about the world around them.
- Boys with an excellent breadth of scientific knowledge that enables them to form informed opinions and which should stimulate further exploration around the subject.
- 95-100% pass rate at Common Entrance every year and success in scholarship exams.
- Boys who understand the relevance of science in the modern world.
- Boys who have a clear understanding of the scientific method and its importance in obtaining accurate results from experiments whilst being aware of safe experimental practice.
- Boys with a love of the subject and a desire to discover more about the world they live in.
Science is taught in the science lab from Year 5 and in form rooms before this point. Practical work is still achieved in form rooms due to banks of equipment held in the various areas of the school.
