Students awarded Gold Crest Awards for science

06th November 2015

Nuffield Research Placements provide over 1,000 students each year with the opportunity to work with different Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) organisations, alongside professional scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians.


The two of our Year 13 students were successful in gaining placements working in Science.  Emma was working for Cummins Power Generation on the Defining Requirements for Secure Data Systems and Alysha was working for Kent University on Statistical Analysis of Sand Lizard Data for conservation.  Each student worked for four weeks and had to produce a detailed report on their work.   Organisers, MEBP informed the school that out of all the 25 students on the course both Emma and Alysha were the hardest working students and produced all of their reports on time.

Both students will be able to use these Gold Crest Awards, along with their qualifications, to access University and employment in STEM related organisations.

The students’ Forensic Science Teacher, Mr MacGowan, said “I am very proud of Emma and Alysha for the work they have produced and they are a credit to St George’s Church of England Foundation School.  The organisations they worked for are extremely pleased with their work”.
