Physics at BHS provides a supportive and stimulating environment where students can learn, investigate and marvel at the wonders of our physical world. We are extremely well-equipped with specialist laboratories and modern, technical equipment. Our teachers all share a life-long passion for one of the most fundamental scientific disciplines where the goal is to understand the behaviour of the universe.
We endeavour to provide a fresh approach to studying chemistry to make what can be a challenging subject accessible, interesting and relevant. Through regular hands-on experiments and demonstrations, we aim to enhance students’ understanding of the benefits that chemistry has brought to society and to the environment, whilst also appreciating its detrimental effects.
Biology students keenly engage with challenging and exciting questions about living organisms and their environments. Over the course of several years, students develop their skills in data analysis, critical evaluation and collaboration to deepen their understanding of the scientific process.

Our ambition is to help our students appreciate and question the way in which science governs the world around us and to ignite and cultivate scientific curiosity
The principal focus of science teaching in key stage 3 is to develop a deeper understanding of a range of scientific ideas in the subject disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics
Science is changing our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity, and all students should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. They should be helped to appreciate the achievements of science in showing how the complex and diverse phenomena of the natural world can be described in terms of a number of key ideas relating to the sciences which are inter-linked, and which are of universal application
Science helps our understanding of the world around us. Everything we know about the universe, from how trees reproduce to what an atom is made up of, is the result of scientific research and experiment. Human progress throughout history has largely rested on advances in science
