Science challenges students to engage with and explain the world around them for their own curiosity and future development.
Science enables students to understand why something works the way it does and allows them to gain theoretical and practical skills. Science provides hands on development of literacy, numeracy and a global world view whilst exploring the ethics of certain practices.

Science as a core subject offers students of all ages the chance to explore and make sense of the exciting events and processes in the changing world around us.
Science at Mangotsfield is taught by a highly skilled, experienced and enthusiastic team of specialists. Our aim is to engage students from all backgrounds to help them develop the knowledge, understanding and skills to become confident, well-informed young people with the power to shape events of the future. We believe in a culture of enquiry, promoting a culture of discovery by “doing”, rather than learning about science second hand wherever possible.
We offer many additional activities as a result of the school’s Specialist Science status. This includes inviting Year 5 and 6 to taster primary lessons as well as extra-curricular clubs and projects (Go4SET and Flying Start Challenge). As part of their courses, students in KS4
and KS5 take part in field trips and we are actively developing links with Bristol University and UWE to inspire students to study science further.
In support of this, the department is well resourced, with twelve fully-equipped teaching laboratories complete with interactive whiteboards, a dedicated IT suite and experienced technician support.
