The autumn season is as follows:

Mr Quinton, Head of Science, said “We have battled and overcome technical challenges to try to retain the live feel of the society which is so important.  The Upper Sixth are delivering the lecture live up in the Biology labs, and while the Lower Sixth are in another lab watching it live and asking questions via the chat function on Teams.   It is great that we can continue the work of this amazing society in spite of limitations imposed by Covid 19”
