Science Laboratory Refurbishment Fundraising Campaign

Today we are launching our Science Fundraising campaign here at Wallington High School for Girls. We hope to raise £130,000 over the next 12 months so we can refurbish four of our science laboratories during the summer holidays in 2025. 

Science subjects are our most popular at A level, and 71% of our students study at least one science subject. 

While it is great that so many of our students study science it means demand on our existing facilities is high. This surge in demand has put a strain on our laboratory resources, impacting both the quality of practical education and our teachers' ability to deliver the curriculum effectively in some of our spaces. 

We rightly believe our students deserve the best immersive, practical education that science is meant to provide, and that our teachers should be able to deliver the curriculum to the best of their ability in laboratories that are fit for purpose. 

We hope to raise the funds to…

  • refurbish one of our oldest and lowest quality laboratories, infusing it with inspiration so that it sparks a love of Chemistry in future students. This includes new furniture, equipment, and redecoration.  


  • reconfigure and refurbish three of our currently unsuitable laboratories, making them better equipped to handle the variety of practical work required in A level Chemistry, while also supporting teachers in engaging students in the theoretical aspects of the subject.  

This campaign is very important to us because many universities require students to have deep experience with laboratory work before they are admitted to science programmes. Providing modern science laboratories that are equipped appropriately is crucial as we prepare students for higher education and give them a head start in their future studies. 

The pack explains our fundraising campaign in detail and how you can contribute. Please do take a look so you can see why we need to raise this amount of money to upgrade our science facilities. This is especially important to us as we have so many students studying science and pursuing STEM pathways. 

Best wishes,
