Luke races to the podium Congratulations to Luke Constantine, in Year 10, who recently came second in the MSA British Championship Junior Rallycross. Luke, 15, who has only been racing for a year and drives a Suzuki Swift 1300, competed in the 14-17 year old category and was pipped to the post by his brother, with only one point between them. It was an incredible result from Luke, who attended nine different rounds across the country, including South Wales, Silverstone and closer to home at Croft. Luke’s cousin, James, in Year 11, competed in the samechampionship and came 4th - it was very much a family affair!

An eye for design

Mr Braham, Mr Dawson and twenty-four product design students, from Years 12 and 13, recently headed up to IKEA at Gateshead for a research day.  A-level Product Design encourages students to think about production methods and consider the needs of users from design to manufacture. Students are also required to think about the environment and environmental impact of the materials used by companies for their products and during production. As a destination for a Product Design trip, Ikea is a fantastic place to visit and demonstrates a lot of the key information students are required to know for the A-level course.

A first for Richmond Cycling Club as it honours young community champions

Richmond Cycling Club has awarded its prestigious Chairman’s award to three Richmond School cyclists, who set themselves demanding challenges and, in doing so, raised over £4,800 for the Butterwick Hospice.

 

Each year, Richmond Cycling Club hosts an awards’ ceremony. The majority of the awards are based around a series of time trials held during the summer months. However, the Chairman’s Award stands out as being awarded at the discretion of the Chairman to a club member, or members, who have done something very special over the last year.  Gordon Love, Chairman, had no hesitation in awarding the accolade to brothers Andrew and James Lunn and their friend Marcus Weston, who demonstrated bravery, compassion and sheer determination to do something incredibly special for their community.

The only way is up for Brandon!

The only way is up for Brandon Sutherland-Parker, a Year 13 student at Richmond Sixth Form College, as in just three days, his media studies music video attracted over 2,000 hits on Youtube!  Brandon’s fabulous A-level media coursework music video was inspired by his passion for dance.  Six months in the making, Brandon choreographed, produced, directed and edited the film to the track ‘Level Up’, by Ciara, choosing this song for its catchy tempo and positive message and vibe. His concept developed from an idea to showcase dance from a number of different angles and sets within College, culminating in a mass ensemble on one of the sports fields.
