Students enjoyed a spooky welcome in their science lessons on Tuesday as our Science Department celebrated “Dress as an Undead Scientist” day on 31st October.
Dressed as a favourite scientist, the teachers talked about the life and work of famous important scientists and discussed the many STEM careers available to students who study science beyond GCSE.
