  • The Great British Make Off

    Working either in teams or as individuals, students were asked to respond to a challenging design brief inspired by Britain’s latest sporting passion: cycling. Seven of our year 8 and 9 pupils, with help of the year 11 Prefects have been working hard for the last few weeks to come up the ideas.

    They have now entered the competition and will battle it out against other schools across the UK in the hopes of winning the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to spend a day working with a major UK designer or product developer to refine their design concept. Winning designs will form part of a national exhibition run by the Design & Technology Association.

    Paige Dean, Shauna Scott and Airann Richards in year 8 have been shortlisted to the final 16 for their project ‘Spa Dew’ a sports drink for cyclists.

    Matthew Cycles onto Ice

    Matthew Humphreys  ( BTPW)  was selected as part of BBC One Show Children in Need – Rickshaw Challenge . He is part of the team that is cycling from Salford to Walford. On Monday 10th November,  Matthew cycled  into Nottingham and a group of staff and pupils from The Enhanced Resource Base and Bakhita  House were present to welcome him in.  Amongst much flag waving and cheering Matthew cycled the rickshaw onto the ice of Nottingham Arena.   His smile  was so warm that the ice almost melted!  After the televised scene the group had photographs taken with One Show Presenter Matt Baker along with seeing the rickshaw close up which made us realise the effort of this challenge.

    Well done Matthew!
