More exciting experimentation from our Sixth Form led Biology Club this week, as the still-expanding group of Year 7 & 8 students made attempts at making a plastic from potato starch.

The group of A Level Biology students have been incredibly proactive in their leading the club. This has included presenting their request for funding to Mr Gillett, planning and testing the experiments, creating risk assessments, and supporting students enthusiastically during the club's sessions.

Head of Biology, Miss Sammi, describes the Year 13 team as an 'asset to the school', and is impressed that the experiments they have designed are so ambitious.
