Senior Science offers students the opportunity to apply their knowledge established through the junior school into topical, real world applications such as the impact of micro-organisms and disease and how carbon emissions, the destruction of forests and ocean acidification are linked to climate change. NCEA Level 1 Science prepares students to specialise in Level 2 and 3.

At NCEA Level 2 and beyond, students have the opportunity to delve into the richness of the single science areas of Biology, Chemistry and Physics or continue with a general science course.
