The Science Faculty is housed together in one block and comprises 8 laboratories, one shared computer room, 3 prep-rooms and a dedicated Science staff room.  All full time Science teachers in the Faculty have their own teaching room.  We are well resourced with practical equipment and continually assess our available equipment, encouraging staff to identify key practical opportunities and equipment that we could acquire to improve our students experience.

  • enthusiastic, friendly and hardworking students with excellent attitudes to learning;
  • a caring and supportive community environment;
