6th - 8th July, Physics trip to Geneva.

These are the students outside the United Nations display of flags. We also visited CERN, the nuclear fusion research centre in Lausanne, a hydroelectric power plant, the Red Cross museum, a pottery museum, a trip round the lake and a mystery room.

We had an amazing time and Mr Turnbull and Mrs Vale feel privileged to have escorted such a wonderful group of students.

If you will be in year 10 or 12 next year and you are interested in going on the 2017 Physics trip to Geneva, please click here to email Mrs Vale.

Report from the Planetary Frontier: The Latest from New Horizons at Pluto

On July 14, 2015, the New Horizons spacecraft flew 7,800 mi above the surface of Pluto and sent back fascinating images of the dwarf planet and its large (and intriguing) moon Charon. Many of the images show unexpected beauty and complexity on Pluto’s surface. While the data are still coming in from the encounter, Dr. Moore shows the latest photos and fills us in on the current thinking among the New Horizons team members about Pluto, its moons, and the unexplored frontier that lies beyond.

You will need a spare hour or two or could just look at the lovely photos of Pluto at 16 minutes!
