STEM careers visit

Where can physics take you? Quite literally into space!

Year 12 physics students took part in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) day in November at the National Space Centre in Leicester.

We had a great day learning about careers in places as varied as Rolls Royce, the Met (weather) Office and the RAF. Did you know that most weather forecasters had physics degrees? There was also lots of information from the universities of Birmingham, Warwick and Leicester about some of the research they carried out and all of it linked to space exploration.

Great Success in Design Technology

Year 7 have been making Emoji style cushions for their first ever Textiles project. The students really enjoyed the project and stayed afterschool to complete their cushions ready for them to take home. Enough to put a smile on anyone’s face! Huge well done to 7P3!

Post 16 transition day and open evening

Students in year 11 had the opportunity to become sixth formers for the day on Tuesday 22nd November, as they took part in Post 16 transition day. Many students used this as an option to try out brand new subjects that they will not have experienced before, for example, learning about cultural stereotypes in Sociology, how loans works in Finances Studies, and what makes people become violent in Psychology.
