High School

WELCOME TO THE SCIENCE FACULTY

From a young age we love to ask the questions “How?” and “Why?” and what better way to discover the answers than through learning about the science behind the world we live in?

A high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity, and all students should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. Through building up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts, students should be encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. They should be encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes.

At Kingsbury High School the Science Faculty has endeavoured to create a curriculum that engages students’ interest and enables them to develop their knowledge and understanding of the world and how things work. Practical experience and seeing for ourselves forms the foundation of how we encourage all students to learn and through their experience at Kingsbury High the faculty looks to develop the Scientists of tomorrow .
