Science is mandatory for all students from Year 7 to Year 10.

Science 7-10 provides a way of inquiring about the world around us. It explores evidence and investigates ways to discover, develop and produce solutions to real-world problems. Science emphasises the skills for working scientifically, as well as critical and creative thinking to address scientific issues.

Oatley Senior Campus offers students the full complement of NESA Science courses. Students have the opportunity to study up to three of these courses in any combination. Experienced teachers support the learning of all students in modern laboratory settings.

A Platinum stream is offered in the Chemistry, Physics and Biology courses to cater for the needs of High Potential and Gifted students.

In Years 11 and 12, students can choose from different science disciplines, including:

  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Earth and Environmental Science
  • Investigating Science
  • Physics.

In Year 12, students who are studying at least one other science subject may also choose to study Science Extension.
