SCIENCE CENTRE OPENS FOR BUSINESS

Admm8h | 7 January 2023

As we head towards the start of a new term, we are delighted to be able to throw open the doors of our incredible new Science Centre.

 

Our staff have worked tirelessly to get classrooms ready to welcome pupils back and cannot wait to start teaching in this exceptional learning space. The building includes: 13 inspirational laboratories, a conference room enabling us to link with Universities for research and lectures, a faculty room where pupils and staff can work collaboratively and creatively, break out spaces for independent study and also fantastic outdoor space for hands-on experiments.

 

Headmaster Adam Williams said:

 

‘LWC has always had a strong leaning to the sciences, and this new state-of-the-art Science Centre is a testament of our desire to keep investing in a sector of education and understanding that makes a crucial difference on the global stage. Sustainable climate change, disease and health are but three of these sentinels, which our pupils continue to explore careers and livelihoods in as they seek to make a positive difference in the world.’

 

Dr Richard Thorne is delighted to lead his team in this inspiring new building and commented:

 

‘The opening of the new Science Centre represents a major gear change at LWC. The 13 fully equipped labs, will enable pupils to have science lessons in specialist classrooms which facilitate hands on learning. Furthermore, under the leadership of Mr Turney, Dr Murtagh and Mr Collins, the three individual sciences (Biology, Chemistry and Physics) have laboratories designed to their own requirements.Our Chemistry labs have two fume cupboards, which will enable experiments and demonstrations to happen in class, particularly A Level assessed practicals. Physics labs have black out blinds to permit light ray experiments to take place with ease. In addition, for the first time there is a lab dedicated to Junior Science, which will facilitate engaging lessons and activities for our 1st and 2nd Form.

 

Furthermore, the Science Centre will be a focus for broader study and extension beyond the formal curriculum. For example, Astronomy GCSE will be taught here by Dr Haydock and it provides a suitable location for a wide range of extension activities, such as Dissection Club on Saturday mornings. The break out areas offer areas for individual study and project work, including EPQs and promote interaction and collaboration between students and staff.’

 

Many thanks go to all our staff; teaching, business, grounds and maintenance teams who have made this vision a reality. We would also like to thank Feltham Construction and West Waddy Architects for their work on this inspiring project
