Fund Raising – Teams4U

We are taking part in the Southam College / Teams4U visit to Romania in summer 2014. Whilst we are there we will be building a playground for the children in the Alparea Community. We will also be part of Teams4U empowerment programme which involves helping children stay in school for longer and get a better education as only 1 in 10 people can read or write. We need to raise £1500 each, we have a number of different fundraising events including the Coast to Coast in October half term, which is 143 miles and we will climb over 2700 metres! We are cycling from Whitehaven to Tynemouth over the Lake District and the North Pennines.

You can support us via our fundraising pages and or we have our paper sponsor forms in school so come and find us!

Thanks in advance for your support,

Ellie Potter and Scarlett Wakelin

A2 Biology – Practical

Excellent effort has been put together by the Science Department to complete A2 Biology Coursework Pratical this week. Students demonstrated brilliant organisation, punctuality and dedication to complete the experimentsskilfully. Practical skills are vital to understand the basics of life processes and are key to study higher level Biology. The students demonstrated the effect of Sodium Chloride concentrations in the activity of yeast cells in a professional manner. They definitely proved to be the young researchers! We are so proud of you Year 13!
