Here at the Bulmershe School the Science Department is large and dynamic. We put the students at the centre of all we do enabling them to take responsibility for their achievements. We offer a range of courses, from year 7 to A-level, to suit the needs of our students and our long experience in delivering these courses means that every student can be successful.

The Science Department is rightfully proud of the success of its students which has been sustained over many years with many students going on to study Science subjects at universities.

Extra-Curricular Activities

The Science Department offer a full range of extra curricular activities.

Within School we hold a Science Club that meet regularly. We have taken students to visit local Primary schools where they are given a chance to share their enthusiasm and knowledge. Year 5 students from local primary schools in invited into school to participate in “taster” fishbowl sessions and stand alone Science sessions after school throughout the Year. Bulmershe school has a partnership with AWE mentors. Selected students in Key Stage 4 and 5 will be invited to work with AWE mentors throughout the academic year 2017-18.

KS4 students have had the opportunity to attend Science Live an event where they have the chance to listen to some of the country’s top scientists.  A level students have visited the University for a variety of enrichment activities related to their course together with the JET fusion reactor at Culham.

Our students have also attended a wide range of courses and competitions outside school.
