“The scientist is not a person who gives the right answers.  He is the one who asks the right questions.” Claude Levi-Strauss

Science enables children to explore and discover the world around them. We aim to provide lessons rooted in scientific enquiry with practical hands-on experiences that encourage a deeper understanding and curiosity with questioning. We believe it is vital to promote and develop transferrable skills such as observation, communication and team work to evolve the whole child as a learner.

The approach at Hailey results in a fun, engaging, high-quality science education, that provides children with the foundations for understanding the world. Allowing all children to have:

  • A wider variety of skills linked to both scientific knowledge and understanding, and scientific enquiry/investigative skills.
  • A richer vocabulary which will enable to articulate their understanding of taught concepts.
  • High aspirations, which will see them through to further study, work and a successful adult life.

A high quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics.
