Science at Sixth Form
On Tuesday 4th July, 16 girls, along with Mr Massey, attended a workshop at Shrewsbury Sixth Form College with the aim of giving us an insight into some of the jobs available to us if we pursue physics as a career.
There were around 8 speakers, who either had successful careers in physics, or were physics students at the college. Their common ground being, that they were all defying the stereotype that physics and engineering are for men.
We heard interesting accounts from a massive range of women, from RAF pilots, to environmental advisors for oil companies, to physics teachers. Throughout the day, we picked up a wealth of advice and tips for our future careers and learnt a lot about physics itself.
For everyone, the day was engaging and inspiring and revealed a lot about the true nature of careers in physics, beyond the masculine façade.

Drama at The Wightman Theatre
The Year 10 GCSE Drama group and some Year 9 students who are taking GCSE next year visited The Wightman Theatre to watch a performance of ‘Two’ by Jim Cartwright.
We were very lucky to have the opportunity to have a Q&A session and a photo with the two cast members and the director after the show.
