A Homerton school has been awarded £40,000 to enhance its science and technology offering.
Although nothing has been decided yet, Cardinal Pole Catholic School is possibly hoping to use The Wolfson Foundation grant to build new science labs which will benefit post-GCSE pupils.
It was awarded the grant at the end of last week.
