Year7 pupils Sophie Anderson, Chloe Rochester, Kimberley Wakenshaw, Callum Atkinson and Taylor McDonald, attended the Go4SET celebration & assessment day at Newcastle University in June 2017.

This was the culmination of 10 weeks of work by these pupils examining how they could use STEM to make an energy efficient classroom. To complete their brief, the pupils have had to conduct research, build a model, prepare a professional engineers' report and present to a panel of industry experts.

The feedback the pupils received on the day was exceptionally complimentary. Unfortunately no prize this time round but the assessors were blown away by the efforts and attitudes of our young engineers. They really were a credit to the school. All 5 pupils have now gained accreditation with the Engineering Development Trust (EDT) and have also graduated as Industrial Cadets - Level 1 Bronze.
