Real science is all about asking questions and designing experiments to find out the answers. Here at Brambletye we have two purpose built laboratories with their own IT suite and Prep Room. We believe in practical science and these facilities help us to deliver a science curriculum packed with experiments and investigations.

It is our policy in the Science Department to teach as much as possible in a practical way. This helps to ensure good understanding of the subject matter and so a transferable application of skills and knowledge. I consider each topic covered and understood to be a piece in a jigsaw puzzle. Our students acquire more and more pieces of the jigsaw until, putting put all of the pieces together, they see the bigger picture.  This picture of course is but a small piece in the next jigsaw!
