A high-quality Science education is vital for young people to be able to access and understand the ever more technologically and scientifically dependent world in which we live. Our Science department aims to give all students the knowledge and skills they need to be able to explain and understand this world. Most of our topics are taught from schemes either designed in-house, or tailored to our students’ needs to allow them to make maximum progress.

At Hellesdon High School, most Key Stage 3 classes study all three Science subjects with the same teacher, providing good continuity. At Key Stages 4 and 5, however, we that subject specialist teaching allows students to be stretched further. So we are delighted to have a wealth of specialist teachers in each subject area of the department.

sciencesocmedThe HHS Science department embraces new technology to support teaching at all stages of education. To this end we have a number of social media accounts, where we select and release material that is of interest and relevant to our students. However, we are unable to control all outward links and advertisment on some social media sites.

You can find the social media sites our department uses below. Please follow us there!
