English Schools Athletics Competition

Callie from Crew Berger in X23 is continuing to shine in athletics.  As Yorkshire champion for high jump, Callie’s next goal is on the national stage and this weekend saw her competing in the Yorkshire section of the English Schools competition.  She entered the 300m and high jump events and worked hard to do really well in both of them.

Callie’s 300m time was just 0.2s off her personal best and she finished in second place.  In the high jump she won, with another great 1.55m jump.

Callie will now move on to the nationals but before that, has been invited to the Northern Athletics competition in Liverpool.

We’re so proud of her great achievement and her hard work – well done Callie!

Tassomai in Crew Berger

Josh and Isaac were crew Berger’s top workers on Tassomai at the end of last term.  Both boys were regularly getting their daily goals and making great progress as a result. We’re really proud of their progress.

In crew overall, Josh has worked the hardest on Tassomai answering over 8000 questions correctly and logging more than 120 active days on the app.  Well done Josh!

We’ve had a bit of a lull over the holidays but this is also a reminder that crew should all be doing 15 minutes a day and getting their daily goals.

Teen Tech 2019

Nine students from E24, X24 and X23 took time out from their relaxing half term break today to come along to the Teen Tech event held at the National College for High Speed Rail and hosted by Maggie Philbin.

We met and worked with engineers, scientists and technology designers to complete a series of challenges throughout the day.  Freddi managed to breakdown and reassemble a mechanical seal in one of the fastest times of the day and all our students presented their idea for an Eco Bubble, a device that would allow damaged areas of coral reef or other endangered habitats to recover whilst offering a relaxing VR experience for virtual holiday makers!

We really enjoyed the day and gained some insights into careers in Science, Technology and Engineering.
