The nine modern laboratories enable students to carry out a wide range of practical investigations, for example in Chemistry the UV spectrometer can be used in coursework projects.
The industry standard glassware and digital balances ensure accurate experimental results. There is a wide range of fossils, minerals and other geological specimens to support the teaching of A-level Geology.
Biology students benefit from up to date equipment including microscopes and colorimeters. New digital data loggers are used in Physics and all the sciences are supported by a team of well qualified and helpful technicians.
Mathematics uses six classrooms, all of which have data projection facilities.
Four are dedicated to mathematics use and include a newly refurbished maths room with individual IT access for each student.
