DSC08507Congratulations to the year 8 STEM students (Kamran Arora, Cassie Davie, Connor Dazley, Sampurna Ganguly, Elizabeth King, Georgina Lee, Rebekah Long, Jack Meijer, Alice Miller, Lewis Muncaster, Jamie Sargent, Chun Hay Tang) on their brilliant performance at the Institute of Engineering and Technology 'Faraday Challenge' competition, held at the University of Bedfordshire.
Their task was to design, cost and build a prototype 'Mission to Mars' rocket and a working vehicle to transport it to the launchpad. All of our students displayed exceptional aptitude in completing the tasks and outstanding teamwork throughout the day. This was rewarded with a magnificent first and second place for our two teams!

climbing2Well done to Lizzie Nicholls, Lucy Pangbourne, Daisy Byrne and Rhys Hobbs who all entered the Big Rock climbing competition on Friday 16 May. There were close to 150 entrants and everyone seemed to have a great time. Lizzie Nicholls worked very hard to win First place in her category and Lucy Pangbourne climbed exceptionally well to achieve Second place. Lizzie in particular has been very busy this year with a first place win at Big Rock’s bouldering aggregate and due to some fantastic results in qualifying rounds has managed to secure a place at the BMC national climbing championships in EICA Ratho (Edinburgh) to be held on 28 June this year.
