Yes, it's the bulky ones with elastic that he can't use. I'll email school when he goes back. Pupils don't have their own pair, they just take them from a drawer at the start of each lesson.

Are they the goggles with elastic round the back?

Unless he's doing A level chemistry or higher, safety specs are probably adequate. At least that was the opinion at the school where I worked. Any catalogue the science technicians have will be able to supply, or you could order off Amazon. Most schools are moving towards specs rather than goggles because the kids are more likely to keep them on.

Does anybody know where to buy these from? The school issued goggles produce immediate itching and watery eyes for my son.

He's not hugely allergic to latex - mostly with things by his face - goggles, balloons and red noses!
