Oxford International Lower Secondary Science

Teach students the skills they need to become confident scientists

Across the three levels, students discover the joy of learning science through experiments and investigations that stimulate their curiosity while learning to look after themselves and the world around them. Students learn to think creatively through answering big questions and making connections to real-life situations with engaging topics, selected to develop a sense of value and responsibility.
