Science helps students develop a sense of wonder about the world around them, fosters an inquiring mind and equips them with the critical thinking skills to inform their own opinions.
The Science curriculum at Verita International School is underpinned by a commitment to making science relevant and practical for all students. Course units are developed around the National Curriculum released by the National Curriculum of England & Wales. Modules of work incorporate current topics and contain many opportunities to develop deep understandings and practical skills relating to the process of scientific investigation.
Students must all study a core program of science from year 7 to year 10. All classes follow a common course of study with specialised support as required. In years 8, 9 and 10 the science program provides scope for students who have particular strengths and interests in science.
