Science

Our ambition is to instil a passion for science in every one of our students. In support of this, all students will follow a spiral curriculum. Through this approach they will be able to increase the depth of their knowledge and complexity of their understanding of the universe.

The science curriculum at Harris Girls' Academy Bromley encourages our students to develop knowledge across the five key concepts in science: cells, energy, interdependence, forces and particles. 

We follow the national curriculum to ensure our students are given a solid foundation in these key scientific concepts. The focus of teaching is to foster the four main skill areas for science:

  • scientific inquiry
  • problem solving
  • critical analysis of data
  • scientific literacy

By keeping these skills at the heart of our teaching, our students will be able to apply their knowledge to unfamiliar concepts and approach decision-making in a logical manner.

Encouraging such skill development will not only benefit students in the subjects of science, but these sought-after skills will benefit their performance in other subjects. These advantageous skills can be applied to any desired pathway upon leaving school, be it further education or career development in full time employment.

More importantly we aim foster a passion for science within each of our students and nurture a curiosity about the world around them, how it formed, how it survives, and how it’s changing. We want students to enjoy discovering new ideas and concepts in science and be able to articulate and explain them in an exciting way.  Our curriculum is uniquely designed to provide our students with the knowledge and tools that allow them to engage with the world fully, understand its past, present and future, and maybe even change it.
