New science suite at Churchmead

CHURCHMEAD CE School’s new Headteacher, Chris Tomes and all the students and staff were delighted to welcome Bishop John, the Bishop of Oxford to the school this term. Bishop John was the guest of honour at a special ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the opening of a new suite of ‘state of the art’ science laboratories. The Chair of the school’s governing body, Eddie Carmichael, who is also a Diocesan Schools Adviser, and fellow governors also attended the event.bishopforweb

Head of Science, Dominic Tones, commented, “I am delighted with our new facilities. They reflect our achievements and high aspirations for Science Education at Churchmead”. The new facilities in Science are just part of the Datchet school’s programme of improving the learning environment.

Earlier in the day the Bishop and members of the governing body were treated to a lively discussion/lesson where students from Year Eight were able to ask the Bishop directly about his work in the Church of England.

Mr Tomes, added “It was great to show the Bishop of Oxford all that Churchmead has become, showing our vision and enthusiasm for dynamic teaching and learning”.
