The process of Science is a way of building knowledge about the universe and constructing new ideas that illuminate the world around us. Those ideas are inherently tentative, but as they cycle through the process of science again and again and are tested and retested in different ways, we become increasingly confident in them. At Olive high the science curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils become confident in the key aspects and processes of science. The curriculum aims to make each pupil develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena.  

Pupils will be entitled to 3 lessons of Science per week, this accounts for a total of 3 hours per week
