Curriculum - Science

Scroll down to find out more about the Science department and the curriculum we teach at Irlam & Cadishead College


Science is at the heart of all learning.  The development of investigative and enquiry skills support all other areas of the curriculum and the ability to analyse and interpret enables young people to understand and make sense of the world.  The Science Faculty provides an excellent standard of education, enabling young people to achieve their potential in a supportive environment.

The journey into the world of science begins at the door. Our students develop skills inherent in successful academics and they learn to apply them to real life situations.

Alongside the curriculum delivered by the staff, students are introduced to STEM through visits off site and presentations within the College. Students have worked with ACCENTURE, Salford Royal Hospital and had presentations from BAE systems, the RAF and local engineering firms.

In addition, students have access to learning through our new and exciting KS3 Science Club. There are also weekly support sessions for years 7-11.
