We believe that students at Newman Catholic College deserve a high-quality science education which provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity and all pupils should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. Students are encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes.
We offer a broad, balanced, relevant and personalised curriculum that seeks to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to foster curiosity, interest and enjoyment of science in pupils’ lives. This ensures that students develop an awareness of wider scientific endeavours including care for the environment and personal health & hygiene.
We have developed a curriculum which delivers a high quality of education creating an aspirational high achievement culture. This allows everyone to experience success and to develop scientific language and literacy throughout the curriculum whilst also raising the standards of attainment across all key stages. Our curriculum strives not only to create cultural capital with core scientific values (such as accuracy, precision, objectivity and enquiry) but also to ensure spiritual development in a caring and supportive environment.
