Science is the study of living things, materials and physical processes. It is a subject that stimulates a spirit of enquiry through the development of natural curiosity and reasoning. Science promotes the skills of observation, investigation and interpretation and equips students with a valuable knowledge and understanding of the world in which they live.
At Channing, we aim to provide a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum. Science is all around us and its ever-changing nature makes it all the more essential that students are aware of their environment, the huge advances that have been made and the challenges that we face in the future. Helping students to understand as much as possible about Science will stimulate their imagination and intellect and will give them a passion for the subject and encourage them to develop and foster a caring attitude towards the environment and living things.
There are seven full-time and two part-time subject specialists and three full-time technicians.
There are seven laboratories, allowing students to carry out a full range of practical work. Interactive ICT facilities are available in all of the laboratories.
In Year 7, the students study a range of topics covering many aspects of science.
In Years 8 to 11, the students study the three separate sciences.
Channing follows the Triple-Award Edexcel IGCSE syllabus.
