Science Visit to The Swanage School
On Monday 16th November, Mr Foyle & Miss Robinson visited The Swanage School to deliver information on the science post 16 options available at The Purbeck School; Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Applied Science. Year 11 students explored the links between Biology and Chemistry, using molecular models to build a glucose molecule. They also used chemical analysis, flame tests and halide ion precipitation, to identify unknown ionic compounds. The session culminated in a video call with current year 12 students who shared their experiences in studying sciences at The Purbeck School.
All the students were exemplary in their conduct and showed real aspiration to study science in the future. Hopefully we will see many of these excellent students joining us at The Purbeck School in September 2021!
