Our large Science Department comprises teachers who develop engaging, academically challenging environments for all students and who promote a love of learning and scientific inquiry. Australian Curriculum courses are offered in the Middle School, while SACE and IB courses are taught in the Senior School. In the Middle School, mixed ability classes are taught using a diverse range of methods. Students with special needs are very well supported across all year levels, and experience in adapting curriculum to meet diverse student learning needs would be beneficial. Teachers work collaboratively in all phases of the planning, teaching and assessment cycle, yet enjoy great flexibility and freedom to explore innovative ideas. A range of academic competitions, excursions and visiting speakers are organised to stimulate and enrich students’ learning experiences.

Heads of Biology, Chemistry and Physics support the Head of Science in leading the Department. Laboratory Technicians are an integral part of the team on both campuses. The Department is enjoying the new state of the art Technology, Science and Visual Art building which offers opportunities for collaborative projects at the Middle School.

Pembroke School offers a collegial and dynamic professional environment with generous provision for staff professional development.
