Science

At Wetherby Kensington we believe that science stimulates and excites pupils’ curiosity about phenomena and events in the world around them. Science encourages the boys to think about why things happen in the way they do. Through our science curriculum the boys learn to ask scientific questions and develop their investigative and problem-solving skills. They also begin to appreciate the way science will affect their future on a personal, national and global level.

At Wetherby Kensington we encourage the boys to understand how science can be used to explain the changes on earth, predict how things will behave and analyse why this has happened. Our engaging, inspiring science lessons and workshop opportunities provide our boys with the opportunity to learn about the essential aspects of the knowledge, processes and uses of science. We want our boys to bold in their questioning whilst inspiring curiosity and enabling them to ask why and how.

Through our science curriculum boys learn to ask scientific questions and develop their investigative and problem-solving skills. They also begin to appreciate the way science will affect their future on a personal, national and global level. Through the addition of educational visits and enrichment workshops the boys are given every opportunity to develop their own personal understanding of science and the effects they can have on the future of our world.

Wetherby Kensington follows the most up to date curriculum, focussing on practical and investigative work. Through building up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts, the boys are encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. All boys are given a platform on which to observe and record changes during experiments and are encouraged to work as part of a group as well as independently.

Science allows our boys to explain the unknown in ways they would never have imagined. As with all other subject areas at Wetherby Kensington, we want the boys to always enjoy their learning.
