The day started with a welcome from Steve Cross, Chair of TTP. Pupils learnt about the following range of topics delivered by scientists such as:

It made me think outside the box, and made me expand my brain to thinking about real world problems, and the uses for biology in these. I absolutely loved the marine biology talk – it was by far my favourite. And seeing as I am wanting to study marine biology at university after school, it left me in complete awe and excitement for what might come.”
The team of the week this week could have gone to several sides. However, the standout performances, after much deliberation, came from the Under 13A boys cricket team who had an excellent week with two brilliant victories.
