A chemistry laboratory has been gutted and refurbished as the first step of a major revamp of science facilites at Dunottar School, Reigate.
Dunottar describes the lab’s design as modern and futuristic, featuring a periodic table on the floor, sweeping curves and designer furniture.
Rea Pope, Head of Science, said:
“My vision was to create a learning environment that would engage students—an area where they would want to come and learn, which would inspire them. The brief was to create something different: to take the necessary parts of a science lab and to immerse them in an environment that was fun and exciting.”
The facility has been funded by United Learning, which Dunottar is part of.
Rowena Cole, Head Teacher, said:
“It has been fantastic to see the reaction of all our pupils to our new lab, and the design really captures our aspiration and ability to create a cutting edge learning environment. It won’t be too long before facilities on site are completely transformed for the benefit of our current and prospective pupils.”
