Our team of four Year 7 students, Daniel O, Adaliena J, Georgia T and Maelee S, took part in this year's Sciathlon event organised by Blackpool Sixth form college, the Royal Society of Engineering and the University of Central Lancashire. The Sciathlon is a series of scientific, technological and engineering tasks which have to be completed in a very short amount of time.

Although the challenges were quite tricky for our Year 7s, the team did not give up and managed to complete all of them, a great demonstration of resilience and best attitude from our students.

Miss Plancke, who accompanied the team to the event, said: "It might not have been the fastest solar panel car or the fastest magnet-motored windmill, but they all worked perfectly well in the end; it made me a very proud teacher indeed!"
