At Mile Oak, we provide children with a range of exciting, engaging and thought-provoking learning experiences which enable them to develop their scientific skills.

We aim to harness children's innate curiosity and enthusiasm for Science. We will provide them with fun, practical and meaningful lessons where every child is challenged and supported to reach their full potential.
