At New Wave we are unashamedly passionate about all scientific matters and believe that this is evident in our day-to-day delivery of scientific content. We believe that Science develops a set of specific skills that allows students to make informed decisions that help them both fulfil their own potential and help those around them.
We understand that our pupils are naturally curious and we encourage this inquisitive nature by helping them to frame questions within topics so they can test and evaluate ideas. Pupils are given the opportunities through topics and investigation to progressively deepen their knowledge of scientific concepts and build up the skills to access that knowledge.
We believe Science should excite pupils’ interests, build on their prior knowledge and build their confidence, enabling them to take risks, work out problems and raise further questions. It should encourage positive attitudes and shape articulate learners who are able to explain what has been learnt and how.
