Year 7 have been having a magical fortnight in Science with Harry Potter themed chemistry lessons.

They have been taking part in a nationally recognised STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) challenge involving making exploding Basoliths and magical creatures, as well as herbology and levitation classes.

Chemistry is only covered briefly in primary school and our Science Department wanted to give the chemistry skills of all our new students a real boost, making full use of Myton’s laboratory facilities.

Students who successfully complete the 2-week course are eligible for a CREST Discovery award. Please ask your child about their experience and the chemistry (and wizardry) skills they have learned.
