Hampton’s annual Independent/State Schools Partnership (ISSP) Science Day welcomed 45 Year 9 pupils from four local partner schools to participate in a range of exciting and interactive experiments.
The partnership event provided pupils from Hampton High, Orleans Park School, The Hollyfield School and Tolworth Girls’ School, alongside Lady Eleanor Holles and Hampton School pupils, with a fun and informative opportunity to learn about Biology, Chemistry and Physics. The day offered an insight into new topics, encouraging pupils to explore Science beyond the curriculum.
The aspiring scientists took part in a Chemistry lesson investigating exothermic and endothermic changes in chemical reactions, in Biology they examined the effect of pH on digestive enzymes and in Physics they constructed hot air balloons to explore the concept of upthrust.
Mr James Ferrier, who organises the ISSP initiative at Hampton School, was delighted to welcome pupils to the annual event:
It was brilliant to see so many talented pupils from our Partner Schools working together on a variety of exciting experiments! I was particularly impressed with the quality of work on show, and I hope that the budding scientists enjoyed learning from some very challenging activities.
