Welcome to the Science Department at Essa Academy
Straight to the Super-lab
Strand Leader: Miss B Bham
Here at Essa we take great pride in the delivery of our science education. We have a firm belief that by focussing on the “Big Ideas” and incorporating an enquiry based approach to learning we increase intellectual engagement and foster deep understanding through the development of a hands-on and minds-on approach. We are preparing our learners to be active citizens of the 21st century.
Science is an important part of our heritage and we have a reputation of producing quality scientists. This is because we nurture our students and work hard to identify misconceptions and track progress from the moment they come to us, to the point where they are ready to certificate and move on to pastures anew.
