  • "This is an excellent design. It really emphasises the emotion of driving a Hyundai and the inspiration it provides. I love the idea of the student embarking on a journey being translated into a design on the car. Very creative and extremely inspirational."

For business...

How does Premium Partners work?

We often hear business leaders claim that young people are not prepared for the work place and that schools are not equipping them with skills they desperately need.
 
We believe that schools cannot be expected to address this alone and that Businesses have an integral role to play in the whole education of young people in the UK.
Premium Partners for Schools provides a way to do this successfully.

Thursday 19th May was a big celebration of all the work that's been done over the past year with students from Castle and Marlwood and the Partners involved. We saw go-karts, microscopes, seeds from space and pitches from students wanting to make their learning environment more agreeable. 

Eastwood Park hosted the event, and we were lucky to be able to enjoy the fantastic grounds.

Our fantastic Year 9 BVM Go Kart team gathered in Tetbury on a soggy Bank Holiday Monday to test out their hot dog design against 15 other teams. The course was a tight and twisty down hill run which the boys navigated brilliantly. Huge crowds came to cheer on this local spectacle, and despite initial nerves, our boys rose to the occasion and had a thoroughly enjoyable day, entertaining the masses along the way!

Today saw Marlwood boys first trip to Essilor to start a five week long project to design and build a telescope. The boys were welcomed by bacon butties and juice to give them a bit of a boost before starting hard maths that A level students would do! With Matt's help and by using maths of optics, they were able to calculate the size and strength of their lenses, and will be starting the design of the telescope next week.

Watch this space!!
