Benjamin Britten Academy of Music & Mathematics

An 11-18 co-educational day school and Centre of Excellence in Mathematics

Coronavirus (COVID-19)


The ten science laboratories are to be found near the Upper School Office and are equipped with the most modern scientific equipment, including interactive high-definition ProWise teaching screens. Each laboratory is named after a scientist who has contributed a discovery or theory to science. These rooms can each accommodate up to 30 scholars. Led by a Director of Science, Director of STEM, Lead Practitioner in Science, and a Head of Biology and Head of Chemistry. The Laboratories are staffed by twelve science teachers, ensuring the quality of teaching in every lesson of this core subject is to the highest standard. The department also has access to a dedicated Science Computing Suite and is assisted on a day-to-day basis by a Laboratory Technician. It is hoped that these modern settings, together with the passion, enthusiasm, and knowledge of our teaching staff, will help to promote a greater enjoyment and a lasting understanding of the sciences.
