Oxford Group Science Day

On Tuesday we welcomed 17 Prep School Heads of Science to Elstree for the Oxford Group Science day.   They took part in various group workshops, talks and discussions.   The Rutherford Appleton laboratory came to share information about what they can offer to schools.  The Head of Science from Wellington College spoke about expectations in Science at C.E. and Scholarship level,  and about the progression in Science from prep school to public school level.  Following an al fresco lunch on the Terrace the group headed back to the new Science Labs to observe a lesson given to some Year 7 boys by  the Head of Science at Winchester and a member of the Winchester Physics department.  The boys rose to the occasion and were model pupils!
