Murder Mystery at Spires Academy

Posted on: 23/01/2018

Another excellent primary school Forensic Murder Mystery day with our outstanding science department!

Hersden and Sturry primary schools have just completed a fantastic day solving a murder at Spires Academy. They have used Bunsen burners, tested blood samples using chromatography and used acids and alkalis to solve the clues.


Here’s what they had to say:

“I loved it...I can’t wait to come back to Spires”,

“My favourite part was the flame testing and slime...I love Spires and the new science labs. I can’t wait to come here in September”,

“I loved the flame testing, thank you”.


If there are any schools who are interested in being involved in a similar activity please email
