Operating Theatre Live!

Seventy-five of our potential medical students from Years 10 to 13 spent Saturday experiencing what it is like to work in a real operating theatre.

LGS Head of Biology, Dr Fulton, organised the event which also involved a dozen students from Oakham School. 

The award-winning Operating Theatre Live event offered a curriculum-linked learning experience based around the dissection of real anatomical specimens in a real operating theatre and offered students the chance to step into the shoes of a surgeon and see inside the human body. 

Hands-on with real specimens, students learned principles of GCSE and A Level Biology, Chemistry and Maths through the technical dissection of real organ specimens. Lead by a clinical team, the Operating Theatre Live experience was matched to the main AQA, OCR, EDEXCEL and EDJUQAS specifications.
