Prep pupils take on the F1 in Schools Challenge

With our excellent track record in the F1 in Schools challenge in the Senior School, it was only a matter of time before we entered the Primary competition!

Year 5 and 6 have started planning their designs and prototypes for the teams selection. They have shown impressive commitment to their project and a very good understanding of the aerodynamics involved. Have a look for yourself below!

The teams will work towards their regional finals alongside the Senior teams. They will be mentored by two of our Year 11 pupils, Alex and Leo, who have both won the regionals in their category, with Alex going on to finish 3rd in the UK with her team in 2019. Lots of insider’s knowledge and wisdom to impart – keep an eye out for their progress.
