Madeley Primary School is involved in the Ashdale Cluster Science Project. This involves working with the three other schools in the cluster on a range of activities. All classes are taught Science using the Primary Connections program.

Madeley Primary School has a Science specialist teacher who teaches Scientific Inquiry Skills from Year One to Year Six. This initiative was trialed in 2014 and was successful so it has continued in 2015 and 2016. Students are given a broad knowledge base of both scientific skills, content and concepts with Science being taught as a specialist subject and in the classroom.

Selected students from Year Five are involved in a Science Extension Program. Each term a number of Year Five students attend Science lessons at Ashdale Secondary College with students from Ashdale and Landsdale primary schools. This allows students to use equipment and resources that they are not able to access in primary school, and gives them the chance to expand their scientific skills and knowledge. Students from Year Six also attend Science lessons at Ashdale Secondary College as part of their transition to high school.

Each year Madeley Primary School celebrates National Science Week with a range of activities. These include quizzes and challenges both at school and to take home, and interactive activities for all students. Some classes are also given the opportunity to attend the Ashdale Secondary College Science Expo and get to see work from the cluster schools on display as well as displays and presentations from a range of providers.
