The science department is staffed by a highly committed team of five full-time members of science specialist teaching staff and one full-time technician. 

As a department we share the following vision:

“A great science teacher should not only ensure students achieve the best qualification they can but should also instil in students a love of learning, an inquisitive approach, and a desire to understand the world around us in a way that develops students both academically and socially. We believe that every student is capable of achieving a science qualification. By focussing on high quality teaching we can ensure students leave La Mare with positive attitudes to learning and with their career prospects as wide as possible. In today’s world of rapidly advancing technology and ideas it is through science that the youth of today will be empowered to develop the world around us in ways not previously imagined, for their benefit and for the benefit of future generations.”

Through rigorous teaching and assessment cycles, in addition to a wide range of enrichment activities, we aim to meet the outcomes of our vision.
