Rolls-Royce Science Prize
We are delighted that from over 2,000 national entries, our school has been selected as one of the 6 finalists in the prestigious Rolls-Royce Science Prize competition.
We receive £5,000 and the support of a Rolls-Royce Mentor to help us implement our planned science development in school.
Over the course of the academic year, we are documenting our project with monthly diary and video entries and are invited to attend the Rolls-Royce Science Prize celebration event in November 2019, where the overall winner and runner up will be announced.
