Situation

The development of this new science facility will be the consolidation of the current high status of science within the curriculum at Moreton Hall. Here at Moreton we believe that a growing number of girls should be seeing careers in science, medicine and engineering as a viable and exciting career prospect. The Eco Science Centre will allow for the provision of 6 specialist teaching laboratories and one research laboratory for the upper school, and a dedicated junior science/ICT laboratory. All laboratories will be equipped with the most up to date experimental apparatus and laboratory furniture, and supported by the excellent ITC infrastructure that Moreton Hall has already invested in. The building itself will reflect innovative environmental and technical ideas: the highest standards of insulation, ground based heat pumps, solar heating and solar electrical systems, waste heat retrieval systems, even a small hydro-electric scheme. We will invite developers of innovative eco technologies to incorporate and showcase their new products within and around the building, inviting investors to see them in a working environment. Serving the community, the building will also be used for conferences, business meetings, and residential teaching programmes. It will be made available to local and regional state schools, and an annual programme of science events and lectures from eminent and inspiring scientists will be opened to schools across the UK. Moreton Hall has made £1.5 million available to the project and we are now seeking another £1.5 million in match funding.
