We are one of several schools within Kernow Learning Trust that are working with The Ogden Trust as partners.  This means we have access to exciting scientific opportunities.  

Through the School Partnerships programme, the Ogden Trust is providing funding, equipment, CPD and facilitate partnership working with other schools and Trusts in the UK.

Science leaders from each of the partnership schools meet termly to plan an exciting and inspiring programme of events.

Science at our School

Science essentially helps children to make sense of the world around them. Science allows children to acquire a body of knowledge which is supported by completing experimental tests and which is organised in a way that makes it easy to use. Science also provides children with the opportunity to access a practical way of finding reliable answers to questions we may ask about the world around us.

 Aims and Objectives
