Parent Tours - SciTech Project

We were delighted to showcase progress on our exciting SciTech project to parents today. Visitors heard from Mr Collier who spoke about the in-depth thinking, research and planning behind this innovative space and how the facilities have been designed to inspire teachers and pupils by offering much more than functional science labs.

Parents were able to see how the buildings have been designed to offer light, collaborative spaces in which pupils will be able to engage in dialogic learning, supporting each other to think, hypothesise and evaluate their research. They also heard about the sustainable features included in the build, such as solar panels, ground-source heat pumps and the use of eco-friendly materials such as cross-laminated timber.

On their tour, parents met with pupils who demonstrated their extensive knowledge of Astrophysics and also with pupils engaged in the exciting Stan-X programme, which is run in conjunction with Stanford University.
