The sciences are very popular at Featherstone and enjoy high take up rates. We offer a range of courses at levels 1 to 3 in the sciences including A levels (in Biology, Chemistry and Physics) and BTECs (in Applied Science).
We have 14 state-of-the-art teaching laboratories that are fully equipped with subject specialist materials. Every pupil has access to a rich programme of enrichment including clubs such as the astronomy club and opportunities to participate in science week activities delivered by experts from institutions such as UCL and the Royal Society as well as residential field visits.
Teachers are always ready to provide information, advice and guidance so that pupils can progress further onto university courses such as bio-medical sciences and pharmacy. Last year, pupils went off to university to study courses such as Medicine, Pharmaceutical Science, Biomedical Science, Arts and Science and Medical Biochemistry.
