St George’s has four modern, individually designed Science laboratories for the teaching of Biology, Chemistry and Physics. These bright and colourful labs are all equipped with the usual laboratory features such as gas taps, sinks and electricity sockets together with an extensive range of specialised practical equipment. These practical facilities allow our students to adopt a hands-on approach to discovering and understanding scientific principles and experimental procedures.
Each lab also contains a modern interactive white board with internet connectivity to enable the use of a wide range of inspirational resources to compliment the practical work. In addition, the Chemistry laboratory is equipped with a fume cupboard to meet the demands of A-Level practical work. Laptops and iPads are available for specific projects to allow a variety of teaching and learning initiatives with the aim of broadening the students' interest in Science through technology.
Health and Safety are paramount - that is why our labs adhere to the guidelines of the UK organisation CLEAPPS, ensuring that the labs are equipped with all necessary safety features. We have a dedicated preparation area and on-staff lab technician to offer teachers and students support with their practical work and with safety-related issues.
