The Science faculty is housed in a modern, purpose-built facility that compares favourably with many university departments. It is impressively resourced with state-of-the-art equipment that can be shared between the three science departments. All girls at Monmouth School for Girls study Biology, Chemistry and Physics until the age of sixteen and preparation for that begins at Year 6, when girls from the prep department attend for their lessons.
The three sciences are delivered by specialist teachers in both Years 7 and 8. The programmes of study are designed to lead on from Year 6 Science courses and provide a firm and broad foundation for IGCSE Sciences, which begin in Year 9. The Schemes of Work follow the statements in the National Curriculum for Science KS3 that pertain to the programme of study that has been devised by the school’s Science Department. All aspects of teaching and learning are covered, including the principles of scientific investigation and safety. The course is well-resourced with networked interactive activities and it is supported by text books and work books.
