Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Computer Science are taught as separate subjects, by specialists, at all Key Stages with Further Mathematics and Psychology offered in addition in the Sixth Form. Bucking the national trend for girls, these subjects are all popular in the Sixth Form at The Abbey and many girls go on to study STEM and other related subjects at university.

These disciplines provide opportunities for the girls to develop a range of skills from hands on practical work (with 4 dedicated labs for each separate Science) and computer programming to the power of combining logical and creative thinking in problem solving.

Specialist days, visits, clubs and cross-curricular activities complement the standard curriculum time and enable the girls to see how solving real life problems comes from combining and applying what they learn in the different subjects.
