Digital laboratories 

Our main science teaching laboratories provide a world-class, highly interactive and stimulating learning environment.

They have been fitted with the latest digital technology, allowing:

  • students to project microscopic images onto computer screens and projector boards so they can share their discoveries with the entire class
  • each student to access a networked computer, digital camera and microscope so they can create their own virtual libraries of images and share these with classmates and teachers
