Year 10s engineering experience at Alton College
We have always had a good relationship with the Engineering Department at Alton College and they were very receptive to Mr Waite's idea of regularly taking students to experience practical engineering at the College.
36 students are split into small groups and every two weeks on a Friday afternoon they are taken over to the College. Each group has two sessions throughout the year. They are all making a steel tool tray. The first session focuses on sheet fabrication, marking out and bending the steel. The second session is welding and brazing. A brilliant way to get our students interested in a possible future career.

At this month's Lecture Club, there was some thoughtful debate on the difficult topic of eating disorders. Emmerdale actress Gemma Oaten gave a heartfelt account of her own personal experience. https://t.co/swU1qbDbPh #WeAreEggars https://t.co/aX0UzdRXf0 2:36 PM - 19 Jan 2022
