Team building

posted 13 Jun 2018, 04:00 by N Nelson

We were really pleased to welcome new students to Ryde 6th Form from Sandown Bay Academy on Monday for their Y13 studies.

We had a great day team building with a pallet furniture challenge - it was good to see all the students working together and we were really impressed with what they managed to make in the limited time they had. We definitely have some future upcyclers in our midst.

 





Higher Education Fair

On Thursday 26th April Year 12 students from Ryde and Sandown Bay Academy went to Winchester University for the annual UCAS Higher Education Fair.

This is one of the early steps in considering university and allowed students talk to representatives from universities from across the UK. It was a really enjoyable trip and it was really pleasing to see so many students thinking seriously about their future options.

On Thursday 26th April, 6th Form students were at GKN presenting to a panel of engineering experts with their ideas on how GKN can improve productivity with the use of robotics. The day was part of the Engineering Education scheme which is an opportunity for students to take part in learning about project management, working as a team and developing ideas for real world solutions for a local company.

Not only did they do a great presentation they also won the  choice award, voted by all the other students, teachers and mentors!

Mrs Robert's Year 12s and 13s have become parents ... egg parents! All in the name of Psychology.

Well done to all Year 13 students who took part in the mock interviews this week. Our guest panel were very impressed with the knowledge and attitude of students that took part. Our students were described as 'a credit to the school' and 'a delight to interview'.

Thank you to everyone that volunteered their time to come in and talk to our students. It was very valuable experience that gives students the experience of an interview with good quality feedback.

STEM Engineering Education Scheme

posted 23 Oct 2017, 02:55 by N Nelson

In October Year 12 students attended the induction day for the Engineering Education Scheme at Southampton University. This was an amazing opportunity for students to take part in learning about project management, working as a team and developing ideas for a real world solution for a local company.

The students also had an opportunity for a tour of Southampton University and sample what university life is like on campus.

Students will be mentored by and working with GKN Aerospace over the next 6 months on a project that will help GKN’s production process to save time and potentially money, using robotics.

Students were told of the importance of STEM career choices and how the UK economy will depend on our students in the future.

The team building exercise in the afternoon, asked the students to work in their project groups and create a rollercoaster that allowed a marble to roll. The winning group was the team that could keep the marble rolling the longest. The team quickly discovered that making the track as long as possible would allow this. Valuable lessons were learnt on using time effectively and planning ahead before diving straight into their project ideas.
