The next Brian May?
A really impressive Design & Technology project has just been completed at home by Dan H: an electric guitar which works beautifully! He designed it, ordered and shaped the rectangular block of wood for the body, ordered the neck/head but even reshaped the head. He did all the soldering work, electronics, drilling, effects, intonation, the painting and stringing.
It was a challenging project and frustrating at times, but Dan was determined to solve any issues that arose.
Mr Waite, Curriculum Leader for Design & Technology, commented:
I’ve made quite a few guitars with students over the years and I know how immensely difficult it is. This is one of the best I’ve seen! When I saw the photos it reminded me of Brian May making his ‘Red Special’ when he was a child and how that guitar then became his treasured and priceless possession later on in life. I hope it will be the same for Daniel.'
It’s a BEAUTIFUL thing. Congratulations Dan

Leadership. Teamwork. Fun! Last Friday Lt Commander Russ Haines from the Royal Navy led a fabulous training day for our student leadership team. Their mobile training apparatus was very similar to a large scale Meccano set! #WeAreEggars https://t.co/9so2z6EtpV https://t.co/IIcLQgmcpn 4:15 PM - 22 May 2022
