RPS has two state of the art laboratories (The Physics and Chemistry / Biology) equipped with all necessary apparatus and equipment. The Laborotories are equipped with modern digital apparatus, resources and equipment for accurate practical’s readings and innovative teaching and learning.
These bright and colorful labs are all equipped with the usual laboratory features such as gas taps, sinks and electricity sockets together with an extensive range of specialized practical equipment. These practical facilities allow our students to adopt a hands-on approach to discovering and understanding scientific principles and experimental procedures.
Each lab also contains a modern interactive white board with internet connectivity to enable the use of a wide range of inspirational resources to compliment the practical work. In addition, the Chemistry laboratory is equipped with modern equipment like Vernier software which allows for collection of computer data thereby eliminating inaccuracies seen in routine labs where data is collected manually.
These labs have a desk area for class teaching, and bench space for practical work. The bench areas have a full range of services fed from flexible overhead or floor-level service points. This arrangement allows great flexibility both in terms of room layout, and in use of time, with the transition between practical and theoretical activity able to be made very quickly.
Health and Safety are paramount - that is why our labs adhere to all prescribed guidelines, ensuring that the labs are equipped with all necessary safety features. We have two dedicated preparation area and on-staff lab technicians to offer teachers and students support with their practical work and with safety-related issues.
