‘I think that when you consider the beauty of the world and you wonder how it came to be what it is, you are naturally overwhelmed with a feeling of awe,’
At Stockland Green School, the Science Department strives to explain the miracles of the universe. You will encounter distant galaxies, the power of the immune system and begin to understand the delicate balance of our natural world. All of our budding scientists are taught to question everything and to never accept simple answers in a world that is becoming increasingly complex. It is our privilege to teach the next generation of doctors, nurses, physicists, chemists and engineers. We hope that you will choose to come and study in one of our laboratories and to set foot on a path that has produced geniuses like Albert Einstein, Ernest Rutherford and Marie Curie.
