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.
