Science at Stroud has the ‘wow factor’! Every time a child is engaged in learning science from Nursery to Year 8, we aim to ensure they embark on a journey of discovery. Children are empowered to question the world around them and to think independently, making scientific discoveries for themselves. We ensure this happens by offering a wealth of exploratory and practical opportunities, alongside a rigorous theoretical base. Children learn to ‘work scientifically’ whilst acquiring a robust knowledge and understanding of the core concepts.
We are in the unique position of being able to offer not only a well-equipped laboratory but also a diverse outdoor learning environment, encompassing woodland, a pond, river, farm, and grassland habitats. We strive to continually excite and stimulate children’s learning by offering numerous opportunities for enrichment including science clubs, cross-phase workshops, and off-site trips. Our successes in recent science competitions are testament to the quality and breadth of the experiences we offer at Stroud.
