Statement of Intent


The Science Faculty at St Bede’s aims to provide all children with a broad and varied scientific understanding and knowledge about how their world works, building on Key Stage 2. Students will acquire a range of specific skills and knowledge to help them to think scientifically, gain an understanding of scientific processes and an understanding of the uses and implications of Science, today and for the future.


We encourage our students to be curious and to relate scientific explanations to phenomena in the world around them, starting to use modelling and abstract ideas to develop and evaluate explanations.


At GCSE, students develop their ideas further and explore more abstract concepts and strengthen the links between topics. Students are encouraged to interpret scientific ideas based on the knowledge and skills they have acquired and to communicate these ideas effectively.


Throughout history, Cambridge has been an important place for science, with many important people and discoveries linked to our city. Throughout our curriculum we aim to inspire our students by making use of the rich history on our doorstep and beyond, telling the stories behind the discoveries and the people who made them.
