The first three years of secondary in sciences are combined into Integrated Science course (biology, chemistry and physics) which is 4 hours per week. Each science topic is studied biologically, chemically and physically with various experiments. Courses in Biology, chemistry and Physics for years 4 and 5 (3 x 2 hours per week) courses are designed to promote global understanding of scientific phenomena and prepare students for future science courses.

From year 6, Pupils have the opportunity to choose for the sciences baccalaureate options in Biology, Chemistry or Physics as well as laboratory courses (4 hours per subject). These choices allow students to be better prepared for scientific studies in various European universities. The minimum studies for sciences during the last two years is two period Biology.

We follow the program of the European school system.

The school has well equipped science laboratories with excellent resources for science studies. The students have the opportunity to continuously study sciences using the excellent resources available to inspire and improve their science knowledge. Outdoor activities are also encouraged like the yearly ecological trip and other visits to science centers, universities etc. 

Students participate in the yearly organised European Schools Science Symposium; competition open to students of the European Schools years 2 to 7 inclusive. Individuals or groups of students, guided by a teacher-mentor, are encouraged to explore an area of scientific interest of their choice, not normally covered by the European Schools’ science syllabus. Projects fall broadly into 2 types: 

  • Scientific Investigations 
  • Engineering/Design projects 

The projects will be showcased during the symposium and judged by teachers and subject experts. Prizes will be awarded for the best entries in the juniors and seniors. 

The winning project in the senior category will represent the European Schools at the European Union Contest for Young Scientists later in the year.
