‘Be the change you wish to see in the world!’ (Mahatma Gandhi)
What would our life be without The Internet, mobile phones, electric light or antibiotics….?
Is a scientist somebody working in a laboratory, wearing a white lab coat and glasses?
At Parkgate we believe that these and other questions prove that undoubtedly Science is a huge part of our everyday life and a driving force behind many breakthrough technology developments ensuring that our lives on this planet are as good as they can be.
That is why Scientific literacy is crucial to develop an understanding of the complex and rapidly changing world we live in!
It is the goal of our curriculum to provide an inquiry-based approach to learning science, with ‘fun’ experiments, hands-on activities that encourage investigative skills and stimulate curiosity in finding out why things happen and how things work.
We take every opportunity to relate Science to the needs and interests of our pupils and make it relevant to their day-to-day life.
Think like a scientist – think outside the box! Are you the future Game designer? Software engineer, Multimedia artist, Biochemist, Forensic scientist?
Be the change you want to see in the world!
Pupils want to see that their learning leads to real change, not just exam results.
