Throughout the year additional trips, visits and guest speakers will be organised which will add huge enrichment to your learning.
You are also encouraged to take part in University visits and open days and be part of the growing international links that the sixth form has established.
A recent visit to CERN, the international hub of scientific experimentation, involved a group of Year 12 Physics students facing the cold and snow of Switzerland in order to witness some truly amazing physics in action. They were given a tour of the ATLAS control room and watched scientists, engineers and researchers analyse and disseminate remnants of the 1 billion collisions that occur per second in the ATLAS detector (the largest machine in the world). The trip was a captivating opportunity for students to meet inspiring scientists and see the theories they have been studying in the classroom applied in this groundbreaking project.
Other recent opportunities our students have experienced include:
