About this School


If one thinks of issues in the news such as genetic engineering, the nuclear power debate, environmental pollution, alternative energy sources, IVF, forensic science, DNA fingerprinting and animal conservation, it is clear that an understanding of the science behind these issues is essential if one is to be an informed adult. The Science department at St Margaret’s strives to develop an interest in and an understanding of this type of current issue.

In Year 7 and 8 the emphasis is on enjoying science, learning how science works and developing basic practical skills.

From Year 9 the course divides into separate Biology, Chemistry and Physics sections, each taught by a specialist subject teacher. This leads to a GCSE in Science at the end of Year 10. In Year 11 pupils follow the Additional Science GCSE course.

The A Level Sciences, Biology, Chemistry and Physics, have been popular and successful courses over many years with many of our girls going on to study science related courses at good universities.

At all levels a great emphasis is placed on practical work and students are encouraged to perform their own practicals in our well equipped laboratories.”
