Students benefit from a specialist ‘A Level’ chemistry laboratory


Thanks to two local charities, Mark Rutherford School, Bedford, has remodelled an existing science laboratory, with state of the art facilities now better enabling the delivery of the demanding practical skills work required by the A Level Chemistry course.   

Mrs Bloor, Headteacher said: “The generous donations from both the Gale Family Trust and the Connolly Foundation have made it possible for us to continue our focus on delivering an excellent education and providing students with opportunities to further their academic development.”

“This investment in our teaching facilities will enable the school to increase capacity to accommodate more students, wishing to undertake A Level Chemistry in a specialist purpose built laboratory.

“This will enable us to deliver relevant chemistry practical skills to students, in readiness to access high quality A Level courses, Apprenticeships and University places as they enter a period of transition moving from one phase of life to another.”
