Shenfield High School

Science

 Philosophy and Aims


The department aims to give full access to the Science curriculum for all pupils regardless of their gender, ability or background. All pupils will have the opportunity to achieve their full potential, to reinforce and make links with other areas of their curriculum and build on their experiences in primary school.

We are looking forward to achieving greater success working as a supportive team to further our students’ success.
