Science

What is more exciting than a Science lesson with colourful explosions, acid and alkalis or surgery on a heart? These are among many of the practicals our pupils experience at Thames.

Pupils study one, two or three separate sciences to GCSE. The GCSE science courses include a practical exam and theory papers which together provide a solid foundation for A Level. A significant number of our pupils go on to study at least one science at A Level and beyond.

Pupils take part in clubs which typically include dissections, fun practical experiments, Bronze/Silver Crest Award and other external Biology, Chemistry and Physics competitions. Recently pupils enjoyed a Science/Geography trip to Iceland to learn about the glacial landscape.
