Nobel Prize Winning Former Pupil to Visit School

This Thursday 7th June, former pupil Dr Richard Henderson (leaver 1962) is coming to visit the school.

He is a joint recipient of the Nobel prize for Chemistry 2017.

Dr Henderson will tour the new school and then will have lunch with the Head teacher and some staff as well as some former pupils from his year group.

He will then address some 240 senior science pupils about his journey to becoming a Nobel Prize winner in Chemistry before conducting a science master class with about 50 Advanced Higher science pupils.

Dr Henderson will then be our guest of honour at our annual awards ceremony in the evening and as well as making an address to the audience, he will present the Molly T Hope award to the Senior School Champion.

 

For those pupils and staff who don’t have a chance to be part of the scheduled events above, there is an opportunity to come to the dual teaching area on the 3rd floor at 3.30pm where Dr Henderson will be until about 4pm.
