About:

We are a large faculty of passionate Science teachers with a range of experience and we are experts in different fields.  We work together to provide opportunities of students to learn about Science and the world around us, and to enable students to access the material to develop an enthusiasm for the subjects.  Sydenham Science faculty understand that the learning and skills developed during KS3 underpins the achievements for GCSE and A levels, and therefore focus on delivering a robust scheme of work that assesses both understanding and skill level over a range of topics. 

We have ten state of the art laboratories including two dedicated sixth form laboratories.
