Greenpower & Opus Energy join us for the day...

This week we welcomed volunteers from OPUS Energy and Greenpower to help us launch our Car Challenge!

The Challenge:

We will receive a car..... in parts!

As a school we will build the car.

Design the car.

Control the promotion.

Monitor the finances

Finally, race the car against other schools. (top speeds of 30 mph!)

Greenpower Education work with a number of schools around the world on the same Challenge, helping students work alongside employers and develop some real life experiences.

OPUS Energy has bought everything we need and provided lots of employees to come and work with our students. We are the only school in Northamptonshire taking part!  This week, all students in years 7, 8 and 9 completed application forms for various different roles.  The successful candidates will be informed in due course and will be completing the next round of trials at OPUS next term.

It was a fab day! The excitement around the school was really good.
