MyTutor Maths Programme

We’re really pleased to share the exciting news that this year, a group of our Year 11 pupils are receiving online one-to-one tuition in Maths with MyTutor, to help get them ready for GCSE exam success.

The lessons are designed to build confidence, reinforce classwork and fill in students’ individual learning gaps.

Through the programme, our students have been matched with top tutors studying at the UK’s leading universities. Lessons are hosted in MyTutor’s interactive online learning space and are all recorded, so pupils can use them as a revision tool in the run-up to exams.

For more information, visit the MyTutor site to see how it works, or have a look at the below video of MyTutor on the BBC.

Microscopy Challenge

The second project involved students working with scientists and engineers from the Gurdon Institute and Zeiss to understand how microscopes work and build their own microscopes. The students learnt about the different types of microscopes and had a chance to visit the Gurdon Institute to see the use of confocal microscopes, they also saw electron microscopes being built by Zeiss at their new factory in Cambourne. To apply their knowledge the students were given a selection of lenses, they had to calculate their focal lengths and design and build a microscope using them. Some very good microscopes were built.
