Alok Jha presents the APS Easter Lecture

Tuesday 20th March 2018

Water may seem ordinary – it pours from our taps and falls from the sky – but you would be surprised at what a profoundly strange substance it is. It expands when it cools; hot water water freezes faster than cold water; it defies the usual rules of chemistry. Without its rebel behaviour, though, none of us would exist. Alok Jha will change the way you look at our most ordinary substance. Water has shaped life on Earth, we look for it on other planets as a potential sign of life and this simple molecule connects you and everyone else to the first moments of the universe.

Alok Jha is a science journalist, author and broadcaster. He is a Welcome fellow, developing new storytelling formats for science. He has worked as science correspondent at ITV News and the Guardian and made programmes for the BBC. Find out more about Alok @ http://alokjha.com/ 

This talk will be a story of science and hence accessible to all. Students do not need to wear school uniform. 

The talk starts at 5.30pm in the main hall. All ages are welcome, including family and friends. 

On the night we will be collecting for a new minibus - please donante as generously as possible. 

We look forward to seeing you there.

APS science department.

Year 7 BAE & RAF Roadshow

On Thursday 8th March three enthusiastic presenters, one robot and a huge fan arrived at APS to deliver a show about maths and engineering to all of our Y7. Here are some comments from the Y7 students.

Year 7 Roadshow 1

I thought it was a great experience and I learnt lots of things about maths and science that I didn't know before. My favourite part was learning about Miya and how much information could be stored in such a tiny body! THANKYOU!!!Alena
I liked the experience because I learned that rad planes had facial recognition and Miya the robot was quite cute and small also she was really smart  so thank you for the amazing experience Ali
I learnt so much, thank you. Orla

Another Successful Biology Olympiad

January saw 7500 A-level Biology students from around the country take part in the annual British Biology Olympiad. Students completed two 45 minute papers consisting of challenging multiple choice questions from a wide range of biology topics.

The competition is highly regarded and the highest scoring students are invited to represent Britain internationally.  Our students have performed well yet again and each one has achieved a bronze award or been commended for their efforts. Only 17.8% of students who entered the competition achieved a bronze award and 18.5% of students who entered were commended.

A huge well done to all six students involved.

  • Ava Mitchell: Bronze
  • Esme Keeley-Fermor: Bronze
  • Phoebe Mostyn: Bronze
  • Daisy Cripps: Bronze
  • Sotirios Karagiannis: Commended
