The best way to understand science is to do it, see it, touch it, and – in some cases - to smell it!

Wherever possible, we teach Science practically, to give every child the opportunity to ‘get their hands dirty’, creating lasting memories and experiences that make the subject so much more accessible. This approach, combined with projects and outings, helps pupils to develop an understanding that Science isn’t confined to the classroom; it is all around us and plays an essential role in our everyday lives.

At The New Beacon, we aim to challenge each child’s ability to hypothesise, plan and reason whilst simultaneously nurturing a sense of awe and wonder for the natural world. Above all, our job is to convey our passion and enthusiasm for science, so that the children can’t wait to discover what the next lesson will reveal.
