New Science Centre Opens

After many months of planning and construction, the School’s brand new Science Centre opened its doors to pupils on Monday 9 November. The day kicked off with practical lessons taking place in the building’s eight new state-of-the-art biology and chemistry laboratories.

Dr Paul Reilly, Head of Science, commented: “We are delighted to have moved in and begun lessons in the new Science Centre. The building has been designed for pupils to explore the sciences through experimentation, research and discussion, and we are very excited to get started.”

Science Centre ChemistryThe Science Centre will not only provide outstanding facilities for teaching and learning, but will open doors for educational partnerships with other schools and universities, identifying St John’s as a future-thinking centre of excellence in science.

St John’s has already established a number of learning partnerships with other schools (both state and independent) and educational organisations. In the future school staff will be running outreach sessions and joint workshops in the Science Centre.

The Headmaster commented: “The Science Centre is a truly spectacular building and a great asset. It will help St John’s move forward as an educational institution and is there to enhance the life of the School.”
