Science Teacher – Mrs J Neville
My name is Mrs. Neville and I teach Science to all students at St. George’s Academy.  I studied at the University of Wolverhampton for my BSc Honours Human Physiology & Pharmacology degree and teacher training.  Since qualifying, I have worked at both mainstream and alternative provision schools.

The emphasis in Year 10 is engagement and enjoying science, while doing practicals in pairs or groups of 3 to further develop their skills.
