The school has adopted the National Curriculum for Science as laid down by the Department for Education.
Science stimulates and excites pupils' curiosity about phenomena and events in the world around them through conducting practical, hands on experiments and investigations. It is an integral part of modern culture and stretches the imagination, creativity and curiosity of young people
The school has a carefully structured and well-resourced scheme of work for science which is enriched with extra-curricular opportunities such as an annual Science and Engineering Week in March and participation in the 3M Young Innovators challenge for which teams of St. Bart’s children have won major awards. Scientists and Engineers regularly visit the school to talk to children about what it is like to work in these areas, fostering their enthusiasm for a Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths based career.
