Science is taught throughout the school following the guidelines of the National Curriculum. The Prep School has two fully equipped laboratories and an adjoining prep room and science lessons are taught by specialist teachers.
The Department is well resourced with all equipment necessary for practical investigations, and has its own interactive white board and projectors.
In Years 7 and 8 pupils are prepared for ISEB Common Entrance examinations or scholarships to independent schools.
At Hilden Grange a ‘hands on’ approach to science is encouraged. The Science staff aim to excite and stimulate the interest of every pupil by including as much practical and investigative work as possible.
Every year we raise the profile of science from Nursery to Y8 within our school Science Week and we regularly enter a team in both the National Science Quiz Club Championships and the Salter’s Festival of Chemistry competition and at various times have enjoyed success in both.
Our Mad Science Club is a very popular, after school club where children are able to go off syllabus and indulge their passion for science in a fun setting.
Above all we want our pupils to enjoy science and to develop an interest and curiosity about the world around them.
