We are very fortunate in our well-equipped science laboratory, which complete with Bunsen burners and a wide range of chemicals more commonly found in a secondary school. The lab also includes several animals. There is Chew-bacca the hamster as well as giant African snails and fish. Previous visitors have included caterpillars (in order to examine the life cycle from caterpillar to butterfly), a live camera feed to observe our resident nesting Blue Tits, chicks hatched from chicken eggs and a snake.
