BUDDING scientists can sign up for new pre-school classes, thanks to an innovative partnership between Haslemere’s St Ives School and the Mini Professors group.

Dr Annalisa Alexander, from London University’s Imperial College who lives in Haslemere, cut the ribbon to launch the initiative – and watched children enjoying their first ‘science extravaganza’ experiment.

The classes led by Su Mennie from Mini Professors will be held in the science laboratory at The Hub.

Headteacher Kay Goldsworthy, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Mini Professors to our site.

“It is a very natural partnership as we both have a passion for inspiring children and giving them a lifelong love of learning. We wish them every success.”
