The Faculty of Science is pleased to offer a challenging programme of study which allows students to develop their knowledge of the scientific world and essential scientific concepts from an early age. We have a faculty of qualified teachers in all of the subjects offered as well as modern facilities for our students to learn in. Our three laboratories are well equipped to engage student in practical work from the youngest of our students to the more complex investigations done by our Year 13 students.

Students are also offered opportunities to extend their learning experience outside of the classroom and often engage in practical work in the school grounds and on field trips around the island and overseas.

PREP SCHOOL – YEARS 5-8

The curriculum in Prep school is based on the English National Curriculum. Students in Years 5-8 follow an integrated science programme with biology, chemistry and physics components.  For detail on the content, refer to the course outlines.

MIDDLE SCHOOL  - YEARS 9-11

In Year 9 students study each of the pure sciences separately so that they may make informed IGCSE subject choices at the end of Year 9. All students in Year 10 and 11 engage in at least one science at middle school level. The curriculum in Year 10 and 11 is CIE IGCSE, and we currently offer the following subjects:

At the end of Year 11 all students sit external examinations. More details are available in individual course outlines.
