Mock Results Evening for Year 11

GOLDCREST1Over summer three current Yr 13 students were successful in being accepted onto the Nuffield Bursary programme. This prestigious scheme allowed Harriet Venters, Joshua Tuffnell and Chieun Han to undertake several weeks of funded academic research projects in conjunction with The Open University. The projects were supervised by OU researchers and represented a diverse range of scientific disciplines. Chieun investigated the behaviour of rats and its implications for ADHD. Joshua's work focused on immunological responses in mammals. Harriet concentrated on identification methods for organic compounds in water, rocks and soil.

 

GOLDCREST2Each student produced a full scientific report of their research, display material and it is possible some of the work will be published in scientific journals. Additionally, Chieun and Joshua were able to present their findings at a celebration event held at the University of Hertfordshire on the 6th of November 2012. All students were successful in achieving a British Science Association Gold CREST award which nationally recognises their outstanding contribution to Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.

The first two Advanced Learning Days of 2012-13 have been completed with great success with a growing number of opportunities for our students. The activities are designed to extend beyond the curriculum and provide an aspect of learning away from normal lessons. The first two ALD's have allowed students from all year groups to experience a variety of opportunities from Newsday in year 7, to problem solving for CSI Murder Scene in year 9 and risk taking for The Stock Market Challenge in year 10.
