20 students attended the Open Day at Moor Lane Pavillion. It was impressive to see the talent for next year and it gave students the opportunity to see the coaching they would receive daily. The current academy squad assisted the sessions and it was nice to see everyone supporting each other.
If you are a current y11/12 student and would like to attend our next Open Day after Easter please email – firstname.lastname@example.org

Nuffield Research Placements (previously Nuffield Science Bursaries) provide over 1,000 students each year with the opportunity to work alongside professional scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians.
Students in the first year of a post-16 science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) course are eligible to apply. Placements are available across the UK, in universities, commercial companies, voluntary organisations and research institutions.
Nuffield Research Placements are administered at a regional level by a network of Nuffield coordinators.
We particularly encourage students who don’t have a family history of going to university or who attend schools in less well-off areas. We make sure no-one is excluded on a financial basis by covering students’ travel costs. Some students may also be eligible for a weekly bursary in addition to travel expenses. Your regional coordinator will be able to advise on eligibility.
Applications for 2014 are now open, visit our online system to apply.
