The purpose of the Science curriculum at The Howard School is:

  • to share our passion for Science.
  • to allow our students to develop a curiosity for the world around them
  • to enable our students to not just be able to use modern technology but to develop an appreciation for how it works.
  • to allow our students to appreciate the progress we have made as humans and how the ideas and concepts that we take for granted now were once new and often controversial.
  • to dispel our students’ misconceptions about how science and technology work.
  • to develop critical thinking skills, making our students rational, confident young people who can make a positive contribution to society.
  • to develop our students’ problem solving skills and resilience through the teaching of challenging, abstract concepts.
  • to prepare students for the world of work by equipping them with the aforementioned skills, regardless of whether they work in a scientific field or not.
