M.A.D. For It!

Yesterday, eleven Year 9 students visited the Newcastle University Medical and Dentistry (M.A.D.) school to learn more about what it was like to study either medicine or dentistry at this university.

They experienced a variety of activities from lectures to practical sessions. They gave it their all with CPR, intubating Simon the SIMman, reassembling a pile of human bones and painting on specific facial muscles in the medical practicals.

They also looked at animal dentition, carving a replacement tooth and using disclosure tablets in dentistry. Well done to all students involved!

Science Live!

Yesterday, a group of Year 10 students visited Leeds Town Hall for a Science Live event. There they had the chance to see and hear five of Britain’s top scientists, all working at the cutting edge of their specialisms.

The aim of the trip was to help improve GCSE Science results with top tips on examination success from an experienced science examiner and show students that Science really does offer solutions for many of the world’s great problems.

In a fast-moving, exciting, thought-provoking event, the students had the chance to raise issues with the scientists. with the primary objective to generate greater enthusiasm for science amongst GCSE pupils.

Well done for the exceptional behaviour of all students who went on the trip!

Lakeside Challenge

They were a credit to the school – well done to all who took part!
