Science at Bradford Forster Academy
Through teaching with excellence and modelling exemplary behaviour, the Science department strives to challenge, motivate and inspire greatness in our students enabling them to become outstanding and ambitious for themselves. By covering both practical and theoretical elements Science touches almost every aspect of a student’s life. It allows students at BFA to encounter a range of phenomena from the atomic to the cosmic scale, allowing all to find something that inspires their interest and enjoyment.
Our intent is that students in our subject acquire a broad range of knowledge and skills covering the three core areas of science and develop an understanding of how these relate to; the way the natural processes occur, how technology is developed and how future problems for humanity can be averted.
Students learn how to identify a problem for investigation, build a plan to test solutions for the problem and then evaluate the outcome to determine the best solution. We aim for our students to use these ideas to make essential contributions to future societal, technological and scientific developments.

In achieving this, we endeavour to support our students in breaking through limited horizons and becoming confident, effective, and employable citizens within the context of the local community of BD4, Bradford and beyond.
