The academy has a very busy week this week celebrating British Science Week.
The science team started the week off with a trip to Yorkshire Wildlife Park with a group of year 10 students.
On Monday, primary pupils from St John's and Sir Isaac Newton Primary came to the academy to take part in activities with sphero, catapults and took part in engineering challenges.
We are also very lucky to have Dr Jane Evans, a professor at Nottingham Trent University involved in the discovery, excavation and scientific analysis of King Richard III. Dr Evans delivered a talk to the students on this subject.
On Wednesday, Dr Suzanne Imber, a professor of Astrophysics at Leicester University will be visiting the academy to deliver talks and workshops to year 5 and 6 from St John's and years 7 to 10.
Year 9 students will end the week with a trip to the Science Museum in London.
