Welcome to the science department!
All Shimna students study science in Key Stage 3 and GCSE science with the option of single award science or double award science. The subject is also a popular choice at A Level where students have the choice of studying A level biology, A level chemistry and A level physics.
Students explore a range of science topics through a combination of experiments, theory and investigations, and relate their learning to their everyday experiences. The science department in Shimna offers students the opportunity to explore science in an interesting, exciting and enjoyable way.
