Specialist Science School

As a Science and Mathematics Specialist School we don't just strive for excellence in these areas but across the whole curriculum. This also extends to our partner school and the wider community. We like to take our learners beyond the classroom so that their educational experiences can be enriched. We seek to do this by regular, competitions and "out of the ordinary" visits by guests covering a range of activities and experiences.

We work in collaboration with:

  • Leeds University which our learners regularly visit
  • Pontefract NEW College
  • Queen Elizabeth Grammar School
  • Wakefield Girls High School
  • The Kings School where groups of learners from all four schools work together on different activities.

We have developed strong links with our educational community. Staff and learners visit primary schools and the school hosts primary events which often include the involvement of our year 7 and 8 learners.
