The future's bright for Headington School

Headington School reveals inspiring new science labs

Posted by Lucinda Reid | December 02, 2016 | Facilities & buildings

Headington School has unveiled brand new state-of-the-art chemistry and biology laboratories that have been designed, manufactured and installed by Stockport interior specialists, Innova Design Solutions.

Founded in 1915, Headington School is an independent girls' school committed to providing a stimulating and enriching environment for teaching and learning through first-class facilities and resources.

With the increase in practical teaching across a range of disciplines, the school were looking to improve their science facilities to enable students to carry out experiments in the best possible environment.

Innova provided a full turnkey solution across 4 laboratories and 2 prep rooms, including design, manufacture and installation of all furniture as well as M&E works, flooring, ceilings, decoration, heating and extract.

The teaching staff were an integral part of the design process. Innova interpreted their ideas to create unique layouts for both biology and chemistry disciplines, giving teachers the freedom to tailor learning environments to their needs.

The chemistry labs were installed with Innova's wing  layout to  give teachers greater control of the learning environment whilst shortening the lines of communication. This versatile solution accommodates both practical and theory work within the same space, with services located on the front face of the benching to allow enough room for theory lessons, but easy access to gas and electric points for practical sessions.

A pebble pod layout has transformed the biology labs into a professional workplace, allowing students to carry out experiments more efficiently and to work together collaboratively. This concept has the flexibility to adapt to a range of teaching needs and curriculum requirements, allowing students to work in smaller groups whilst having access to gas and electric services on the front face of each unit.

High quality, low maintenance materials such as Velstone solid surface guarantee the longevity and good looks across the new laboratories, creating a modern yet timeless feel to a science department designed to inspire future generations of scientists.
