Academy students on the gifted and talented register in science, maths or languages have been selected to attend a series of Saturday master classes at The Skinners’ School.
There was an excellent response to the invitation and around 20 students signed up to take part. The most popular courses were Structural Engineering, An introduction to Japanese and Movie Maker.
The free sessions were run by experts in their field and were a fun, practical way for Academy students to develop their skills.
Academy student Jack Murdoch, said “It was certainly a different way to spend a Saturday morning. It was good to learn more about structural engineering and it was especially interesting to hear about 9/11 and the technical reasons behind the collapse of the twin towers.”
Vice Principal, Mr Topliss, said “these courses are a brilliant chance for our gifted and talented students to extend their range of opportunities and study outside the Academy with our main sponsor, Skinners’ School.”
