This is the biology lab I believe. When I was at the school in the 1960s it was the domain of Miss Starkey.

It is now used by the Art Department. All of the benches have been removed... and the teacher's dais and demo bench. Shame really because it was a great room to teach in. As a small person I appreciated the raised position... you could see every girl, and what she was doing. And every girl could see what you were doing when you did a demo... The large benches were great for practical work too.
