It's Science Week!

It's British Science Week and we are joining in! There are after-school science talks in the library and on Tuesday morning Y7s and Y8s had an energy-filled presentation from the BAE SYSTEMS Roadshow Team.

Students learnt about energy sources, how much energy a school like ours uses in a year, and discovered that there are 11 forms of energy.  Well done to our student & teacher volunteers who joined in the energy games which demonstrated some of these points, making it an entertaining and informative session.
