The Biology Department engages in fieldwork at local coastal sites as well as using our own 400 acres of grounds. An annual trip in the first year to Monkey World introduces pupils to animal behaviour.
The Chemistry Department visits Bristol University to spend hands-on time in their laboratories.
Physics pupils have visited Oxford University’s materials and physics departments in recent years, as well as the Diamond Light facility at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory. Plans are afoot for a day for practical physics at Thorpe Park exploring motion in their classrooms and in person!
