The Science Centre opened today with a fanfare from the school's brass musicians and a gathering of boys, parents, staff, governors and guests. Professor Sir David Weatherall opened the building and recommended a novel approach to studying science, advising boys to “Not believe a word that they (the teachers) tell you but to hang everything on its head”. Wise words indeed from the Regius Professor of Medicine Emeritus at Oxford University. Lower sixth former Jonah Walker spoke of a 'buzz' amongst the boys at seeing the new facilities and how they would help to bridge the gap between school and university science. It was a tremendous occasion and marks a very exciting new chapter for the School.
