Today was the final day of school for Year 11 before they head off on study leave; GCSE exams begin next week. To reward the students for their hard work in and out of the classroom these past couple of years, we invited the ice-cream van into the crescent outside school for a break time treat. In the afternoon, the year group came together for an assembly where each of our students were individually celebrated; this was all rounded off by cake in The Refectory. We wish all of our Year 11 students the very best for their examinations.

This week the Year 13 Physicists took a break from their busy schedules in school to visit Jodrell Bank Observatory in Manchester. Starting with a chance to have a go at some hands-on activities they then attended a workshop where, using data from the world leading Lovell Radio Telescope and their A level understanding of circular motion, gravitational fields and astrophysics, they were able to calculate the mass of the universe! They then had a very enjoyable planetarium show on how the elements are made from stars and after lunch had a chance to fully explore all the exhibits on display including an exhibition on astrophotography.
Following the all-important trip to the gift shop, it was time to head home. This was a fun end to 2 years of hard work in Physics for our Year 13 and a great way to support their learning.
