Martin Collier, The Master at Haileybury, said: ‘At Haileybury, we believe the future workforce and society more broadly is going to be shaped by science and the interconnecting disciplines. That is why we have commissioned these buildings to ensure our pupils not only learn science but have the opportunity to become scientists themselves.’ 

Molly, a Sixth Form pupil at Haileybury, added: ‘The SciTech centre has really helped enhance my learning as a researcher. Being able to discover things for myself by creating my own research is a very important skill and I think the new facilities support that really well.’
