A high quality education in science is essential to understand ourselves, our world and the processes that take place within it.  Through investigation, experimentation and enquiry, pupils will develop a sense of excitement and curiosity as they build up the vital knowledge and skills needed to become scientists of the future.  Students at The Fernwood School study biology, chemistry and physics across all the year groups providing a balanced and focused curriculum that allows for students to understand and explain how the science they learn in lessons is relevant to their wider lives.
