Pupils at a Hertfordshire school will now benefit from state of the art facilities following the completion of a new £300,000 science laboratory.
Sir John Lawes School in Harpenden recently opened the doors to its new lab, which was designed by Ingleton Wood’s Cambridge office.
The funding for the scheme, worth more than £300,000, was secured by us via the Education, Skills and Funding Agency (ESFA).
Work was completed after a six-month building phase by T&B Contractors.
Sir John Lawes Academy is a secondary school with 1,200+ pupils aged between the ages of 11-18.
It was judged ‘Outstanding’ in its latest Ofsted report and has been designated as a Teaching School by the Department for Education.
Headteacher Claire Robins commented: “We are dedicated to constantly improving and investing in our facilities in order to provide the very best educational experience for all.
“Science is a key area for us so we are delighted to be able to offer the very latest in state of the art science facilities to all of our pupils.”
Project Manager Gary Benn said: “It’s been a pleasure to deliver this important project for Sir John Lawes School.
“We have been really successful in gaining funding for public sector schemes and it is always rewarding to see them come to fruition.”
