At Mile Oak, we provide children with a range of exciting, engaging and thought-provoking learning experiences which enable them to develop their scientific skills and their understanding of the world.

We aim to harness children’s innate curiosity and enthusiasm for Science. We will provide them with fun, practical and meaningful lessons, where every child is challenged and supported to reach their full potential. We want children to Think Big, which includes them generating their own questions and designing, developing and improving investigations with which to answer them. We will explore both the challenges of and the solutions to climate change.  We want children to appreciate the value of Science in the wider world and the potential it offers for our future.
