Last week 56 Fifth Form students enjoyed a thought-provoking and inspiring day at GCSE Science Live! at the Bath Forum.

The event, aimed at increasing interest in science, gave our pupils the chance to see and hear five of Britain’s top scientists: Professors Robert Winston, Alice Roberts, Jim Al-Khalili, Lucie Green and Dave Cliff. Talks ranged from human reproduction to time travel, taming wild species to computing growth.

‘Professor Winston was fascinating to witness.’ – Current Fifth Form Science Student

As well as listening to and interacting with the scientists, students also received top tips for examination success from experienced science examiner Stewart Cheney.

The day was well received by all our students who felt that the event enriched and deepened their understanding of key areas of GCSE Science.

‘Professor Cliff has opened a new door towards computer science for me.’ – Current Fifth Form Science Student
