Horses, gravity and smoking have been under scrutiny by Year 9 who have been exploring topics of their own choice for their science Bronze CREST awards.

On Friday the girls presented the results of their considerable research to fellow pupils, teachers and an external CREST assessor who all had the opportunity to ask plenty of questions!

CREST is a UK award scheme recognising success, building skills and demonstrating personal achievement in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) project work.
