“The important thing is to never stop questioning”

Albert Einstein

At St.Mary’s we believe that scientific investigation, curiosity and questioning are the most powerful ways to learn; developing self discovery and perseverance as well as challenging what we know about the world help create the scientists of the future. We aim to make science experiences ‘hands on’, linking it to real life contexts and giving a meaning to the world around us.

We want our children to develop the key skills of investigation, problem solving and team work; empowering them to question their knowledge and become scientific thinkers.
