It was a pleasure to welcome over 240 Year 5s from seven local primary schools for our annual Maths and Science outreach day. This popular annual event involved turning our Science labs into research labs, learning about chromatography and various other analytical techniques - and having a lot of fun too. As well as solving lots of different Maths puzzles, pupils learned how to prepare and launch rockets - the winning ballistic team managing to propel theirs over 50 metres!
After an action packed day, Holy Innocents School were declared worthy winners ahead of Perry Hall who finished in a very commendable second place. Visiting staff were very complementary of the activities and of the enthusiasm of the Sixth Form helpers. We look forward to welcoming the next cohort of budding mathematicians and scientists next year!
