Race for the Line 2018



Following the Community College's success last year in reaching the national final of Race for The Line, this year the whole of Year 7 have entered this STEM competition inspired by the Bloodhound Land Speed Record attempt. The first round took place in freezing cold on 8 February at the Community College where 14 rocket cars took off. The cars were designed and built by teams of Year 7 students. The fastest car reached 63.60km/h on a 15m track and was designed and built by Jake Corfield, Holly Kirk, Jessica Newnham and Olivia Nobbs. These students go through to the Regional Finals at RAF Cosford in May. Congratulations to them.

Year 9 trip to the Imperial War Museum


On Wednesday 9th May, 64 year 9 students ventured to the busy yet beautiful city of London. In the centre, rested a monumental building of war and history: The Imperial War Museum.The educational day was packed with replicas of Spitfires, tanks and interesting facts and stories of the famous world wars. I particularly found the section on the Holocaust both fascinating and horrifying. Seeing the real uniforms worn by real people in concentration camps really made the whole thing seem real.

Although it took 6 hours to venture back and forth through a traffic jungle, year 9 had a memorable day that hopefully they will never forget.
