Addition of two cutting-edge science labs

Posted 16th May 2024

Exciting news from Dixons Croxteth! We are thrilled to announce the addition of two cutting-edge science labs to our school. These state-of-the-art facilities are already transforming our science lessons, offering thrilling practical experiments to immerse students in the wonders of science.

Our fully equipped labs have hosted a range of captivating experiments, including methane bubbles, cannon fire, elephant toothpaste, and essential GCSE practicals, like rates of reaction and food tests. With newly refurbished fume cupboards, to ensure maximal safety, we've even been able to conduct demonstrations involving hazardous substances, providing a secure environment for some real chemistry. For many students, these practicals mark their first dive into experimental science.

Our dedicated science teachers, supported by our experienced technicians, are diligently expanding the number of practical opportunities by purchasing new equipment for physics, procuring biological models and plants, and introducing exciting chemicals previously unavailable to us.

As we approach the end of the school year, our focus remains on maximising lab usage, ensuring students are proficient in lab safety and exposed to captivating experiments that illuminate the wonders of science. Parents are warmly invited to visit our labs for a firsthand look at the experiments their children are engaging in. Alternatively, we look forward to showcasing these experiences at our upcoming Open Evening in the next academic year.

Thank you for your ongoing support as we continue to inspire and educate the next generation of scientists at Dixons Croxteth.
