Schools minister Nick Gibb MP has visited Wisbech Grammar School to open three state-of-the-art science laboratories following a complete refurbishment.

The minister was joined at the ribbon cutting ceremony by North East Cambridgeshire MP Stephen Barclay before going on to tour the senior school with head boy Joshua York and head girl Alice Wong and then attending a remembrance assembly with pupils at the preparatory school, Magdalene House.

The high-spec laboratories, which have been designed to the school's specification, include a visualiser, a mobile fume cupboard and data projectors in every room.

Headmaster Mr Nicholas Hammond said: 'Last year ten per cent of the sixth form went on to study medicine and we have a commitment as a school to studying subjects which are vital to the national interest, including science and modern foreign languages.

'This is a complete refurbishment of three laboratories, which demonstrates our investment in study in science and gives us facilities which rival those of higher education establishments and the health service.

'We are concentrating on the classroom, on good quality teaching space. This is proof positive that we put our money where our mouth is in terms of academic pursuits.'
