Library Book Fair at #Brittons

Thank you to everyone who supported the Library Book Fair by purchasing books or helping the Librarian at lunchtimes. 

Mrs Handley couldn’t have done it without the enthusiastic support of her Library assistants - especially Daisie Cohen, Amy Malone, Wendy Ottun and Rebecca Smith.

We managed to earn over £220 in commission as free books for the Library.

Thank you - it was wonderful to see students so enthused about buying books.

Year 9 Girls STEM Science Trip - 13 November 2017

On Monday 13 November, 14 Year 9 girls attended the Sense/EDF/Pretty Curious workshop in Maidstone, Kent.

This event aims to address the under-representation of women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) careers.  Currently only 1 in 5 people working in core STEM in the UK are women.  Pretty Curious programmes aim to change the perception of STEM subjects amongst teenage girls, confronting the reasons why they are being put off from further STEM-related studies and careers.

During the day the students took part in various activities, including creating their own inventions using littleBits kits (an introduction to circuits), building their own nuclear reactor using virtual reality in a timed team challenge and watching a 360 VR film featuring three aspirational women in STEM careers and relating their activities to the real world.
