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.
The Oxbridge Project and Microfluidics
Dr O’Hear: On Tuesday March 18th, Joanna Davies, soon to be Dr Joanna Davies of Imperial College London, came to address the Oxbridge Project on 'microfluidics'. Microfluidics is a branch of Chemistry which focuses on the study of fluids on a very small scale. It can have major benefits in the development of new drugs as it enables scientists to perform tests more cheaply, more quickly and more efficiently.
Miss Davies spent most of her PHD looking at and performing experiments with fluids the size of a hair through her microscope. She shared some beautiful images of these fluids with us throughout the talk. It was a fascinating yet challenging talk and the students kept up really well.
They were also full of questions about the life of a scientist. Next Tuesday we will be hearing from Dr Peter Claus, expert Historian from Oxford University so please make sure you attend.
