Secondary School Entrance Changes

From Monday 14th January our entrance on Wood Lane will be open to students only until 8:55am. Students will also leave via this entrance as usual at the end of the school day. Any students arriving after 8.55am will have to enter via the Du Cane Road entrance and register at the all-through reception, which is located in the Primary. They will then be escorted to their lessons.  

All visitors, parents and guests will arrive and leave via the Du Cane Raod entrance, at all times and also check in to the all-through reception.

The all-through reception is reached by following the pavement around to the left and entering the primary building. 

Year 12 Visit Queen Mary University

How dense is bone and could we make an artificial replacement? How do different materials behave when exposed to different forces and how does this affect their uses? How can materials be made lighter, stronger and more durable?

Year 12 physicists are currently studying the materials section of their AS course and were invited to visit the School of Engineering and Materials Science at Queen Mary University for a morning of materials testing.

They measured the stiffness of various materials using the automatic tensile testing machines and then compared their results by using a manual method, plotting their own graphs and carrying out the calculations themselves.

It was interesting for students to carry out work in a university lab and to meet Engineering undergraduates and find out more about potential engineering careers.

Queen Mary University of London is a Russell Group university. It's ranked 11th in the UK for research.
