Science is a popular subject at INA and the grant will go towards converting an existing classroom into a high-specification lab.
Head of science Ross Mounsey said: "We have a record number of students studying sciences, and this has put increased pressure on current laboratory spaces.
"The new laboratory will ensure that our students receive the best practical-centred approach, which has brought so much success in both student attainment and raising interest in the subject."
The refurbishment will include reconstructing an existing classroom with necessary plumbing, power, specialist laboratory furniture and stock required to fulfil the demands of GCSE and A-level specifications.
