The Technology tournament is an annual event run by the Rotary club, with 3 age groups. Foundation (yrs 7&8), Intermediate (yrs 9,10 &11) advanced (A level / level 3).

Each year is a different secret challenge for the competitors.

This years challenge was to make a gravity powered vehicle to drive up a slope, using only the materials provided by the organisers. 

Marks were awarded for the design of the vehicle, distance travelled direction and the raising of a flag whilst travelling.

All the teams we entered performed well. the two year 9 groups especially however the team of Imogen Lindsley, Eliza King, Grace Blake, Izzy Canning won the intermediate category and won the overall best team, beating the A level candidates  from the Tech and UTC.

Of equal importance to me was  the judges comments on how all our schools groups worked and how enthusiastic they were even when things seemed to not be going to plan, they were resilient and so polite.
