Dr Paul Myatt, Head of Science, was pleased with how their “Chemistry at Work” day went and and has already provisionally booked it again for the same time next year.

As usual, they came from Special, Comprehensive, Upper and Private Schools in Milton Keynes, Newport Pagnell, Buckingham, Bedford, Luton and Wing. Here is a letter I received afterwards from Dr Rae FRSCI and Head of Chemistry at Ousedale School who came to the event and sent students on all three days.

Tring School hosted their second Chemistry at Work day and want to book the event again for next year.
