At Hillbrook we believe science is essential to children’s understanding of the ever-changing world around them.  Scientific knowledge unlocks a wide range of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) careers, which are vital in tackling the world’s future challenges. Through exploring natural and manmade phenomena, we foster children’s concern about, and appreciation of, our environment.  Our dynamic approach, embedding enquiry skills within the teaching of core knowledge, ensures our children are able to thrive in an increasingly scientific and technological world. By harnessing children’s natural curiosity, we have developed an engaging curriculum with plenty of practical, hands-on opportunities. As a result, children leaving Hillbrook are critical thinkers equipped with a range of strategies to solve problems independently.
