Executive headteacher Jane Heffernan said: “It’s been an exciting week. Not only were we delighted to welcome back to school Year 10 and 12, the news that the school has been successful in its bid was an unexpected bonus.

“The funds will be used to enrich our offer to our growing numbers of A Level science students.”

The Wolfson Foundation is an independent, grant-making charity based in central London which offers a wide range of funding programmes and activities for projects and organisations across the UK.

It aims to promote excellence in the fields it funds.
