Lead Practitioner: Ms S O’Shaughnessy
Science (from the Latin word scientia, meaning “knowledge”) is a systematic enterprise that builds and organises knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about the universe.
Science is everywhere, Science is you! Heard of Tim Peak? Brian Cox? Helen Sharman? Isaac Newton? Marie Curie? Professor Winston? Stephen Hawking? They are all Scientists! It is the foundation of an innovative culture and at the core of significant social and political decisions. Understanding Science is crucial for all of us so we can be informed and active in our personal future and that of our country and our planet too. It is all of the above that drives the Science team at The Heys School to engage our students to be determined in real-life contexts of learning and equip them with knowledge and skills to become more self-aware and responsible young people. Our aim is to develop a future generation who can have respectful, informed conversations and use these to make impactful choices.
