Here at SSSO we run Science clubs for girls in Year 7, 8 and 9. During these clubs the girls will carry out activities which are not always on the curriculum but broaden their education.
Our science clubs aim to improve the girls’ understanding of Science, and also to be fun (as all good science should be)! The activities that are covered in Science club include but are not limited to launching water rockets, making bath bombs, experimenting with parachutes and making slime.
During KS3 we also enter students to take part in the CREST award which allows students to research, plan, and create a report on an interesting science topic. If successful, the students will then receive this highly regarded award.
Year 9 girls have the opportunity to represent the school in a forensic challenge for the Salters Festival of Chemistry
