"The F1 in schools competition has provided the department and the school with a fantastic focus for a range of pupils who are technically minded, creative and have an interest in business. For the last few months the students have immersed themselves every lunchtime in designing concepts, learning how to use 3D CAD, planning activities, raising money through contacting sponsors and manufacturing the race cars. This is the third year the school has competed and the competition is becoming ever more popular."

"Pupils are engaged from the moment they start the project, real life skills that enhance their learning from the get go. Teams tackle challenges that test resilience and innovation, whilst developing teamwork and collaboration with businesses and manufacturers to create the perfect car.
Initial skills learnt within this challenge allow the pupils to work with others and learn about compromise and patience.
The enterprise and engineering aspects of the task allow pupils to research and develop knowledge of real problems that relate to the F1 world."
