Pitsford School is very strong in science and the Junior School is very much part of that. We have access to up-to-date laboratories in the senior school to conduct practical work and our teachers are fully trained in the best and most effective approaches to science lessons. Science-related trips are an important part of our rich extra-curricular programme; we regularly visit the Space Centre in Leicester, for instance. We are also fortunate to have in our parental body, past and present, a number of scientists, doctors and dentists, who often visit the school to enrich our children’s learning through their practical expertise.

Older Junior School children also receive specialist teaching from Senior School science teachers, most especially in J4, J5 and J6.
