A Preston school is hoping to inspire the next generation of scientists after opening two refurbished science laboratories last week.Advertisement
Staff and pupils at Archbishop Temple School in Fulwood celebrated the opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
The rooms, which have been completely redesigned, use the latest audio and visual technology to support the pupils in their science lessons.
Each room features new tables, cupboards, chairs and lighting. The ergonomics have been changed to enhance learning, and there’s also a new demo area and portable fume cupboard.
Head of Science Mr Richard McGee said: “We are absolutely delighted that the two science laboratories underwent a major refurbishment during the summer term.
“Biology, Chemistry and Physics are popular subjects at Archbishop Temple School, with many pupils opting to take triple award science at GCSE level.
“This summer we achieved outstanding exam results within the department, with a high percentage of pupils being awarded some of the highest grades possible in science subjects.
“Our results continue to show how much the pupils enjoy the three science disciplines at GCSE and we hope the new rooms continue to support pupils.”
