Biology, Chemistry and Physics are all thriving subjects at The Mount. Girls study them as individual subjects when they join the Senior School and, at GCSE, have the opportunity to sit three GCSE's in the three subjects or to take Core and Additional Science, resulting in two GCSE's. Whichever route the girls choose, they will be taught by subject specialists.
The Department is strong and active in promoting links with other schools and universities. We encourage girls to attend Science Lectures at York University and we were instrumental in setting up the Independent State Schools Partnership in York to produce a programme of science-based masterclasses for gifted students within local schools.
We take opportunities to extend Science outside the classroom, visiting local Tata Steel Works, Drax Power Station and the Thackeray Museum. Closer to home, we have a pond and conservation area within the School grounds.
We offer all three sciences at A-Level and have a strong uptake in all subjects.
