A PRIMARY school has been awarded for its excellent science lessons.

St Josephs’s Primary School in Carterton has received a Primary Science Quality Mark along with 200 other schools in the UK.

The school has used its 3D printers during the coronavirus outbreak to make masks for the NHS, while earlier in the year, it was involved in a national beach clean, and worked with both RAF Brize Norton and RAF Benson.
