Hamilton Grammar School



Welcome to the Faculty of Science

The Science Faculty is made up of the Biology, Chemistry and Physics Departments

Science at Hamilton Grammar involves the exploration of the natural and social world around us.

Pupils follow the scientific method to discover facts through investigation. This allows for a hands-on learning experience where pupils are encouraged to expand their knowledge and deepen their understanding of the world around them.

Pupils enjoy completing practical activities in groups where they can develop communication and team-building skills in a problem-solving context.
