We can all have ideas about how the world might work or why something might happen, but science allows us to make predictions, design experiments and test those ideas. From the motion of particles too tiny to see, to the life and death of giant stars in distant galaxies, the science department's goal is to start you on a pathway of discovery about the universe that will last a lifetime.
The achievement of your science qualifications at GCSE, whether that be following the Combined Science Award or the three individual sciences of biology, chemistry and physics, will open doors for you throughout your life. As a student of science, we will not only increase your knowledge and curiosity of science... we will make you into a scientist!
At Teesdale, we ensure that your child is well-equipped to begin GCSE at the beginning of Year 10 and work with each family to determine whether the Combined Science or Separate Science route is right for you.
Within the Sixth Form, we have very successful programmes in A Level biology, A Level chemistry, A Level physics and A Level psychology. All of our teachers are involved in delivery across the key stages, meaning their subject knowledge and awareness of exam requirements is a key strength. We pride ourselves on developing ‘young scientists’ and encourage investigation beyond the classroom in our extra-curricular opportunities, these include nature club and science club.
