Welcome to Science

Our Science learning area is taught by highly qualified and experienced staff and our close links with higher education institutions ensure that many of our students go on to study science-based subjects at university, alongside visiting research laboratories at universities and being a part of research groups. 

Typically progression will be to a degree in a STEM based discipline. After their degrees, many students pursue postgraduate research.
