Science teaching at Barton Hill Academy is focused on enabling each pupil to develop within their capabilities; not only the scientific skills and knowledge required for later life, but also an enthusiasm and fascination about science itself. We aim to increase pupil confidence in science so they are able to develop an interest and curiosity in the world around them.

We place a strong focus on scientific enquiry and investigation.

A high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity, and all pupils are taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science.

Through building up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts, pupils are encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. They are encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes. We provide a variety of enrichment activities to further enhance our children’s science learning including trips and a dedicated Science Week each year.
