Children in the Harleston schools cluster are experiencing new forms of science education this month, in a variety of events organised by the local high school with the support of grant funding.

Archbishop Sancroft High School brought a series of experiences to pupils in the Sancroft Church Schools Trust for British Science Week, after it successfully applied for funding from three national science grants.

It kicked off with a maths puzzle challenge and open science labs on Tuesday, before the Mad Science Roadshow toured three primary schools in the next two days, while the high school hosted sessions with Google Expeditions today.

Emma Johnson, cluster development manager, said: “We look for innovative and engaging ways to work with our primary schools.

“Science is very hands on and exciting. The high school has resources that the primaries doesn’t and it’s something that parents can work on with their child.

“We believe nurturing young people’s inquisitive minds, allowing them to explore using all their senses and engaging parents in their child’s learning is fundamental in education.”

Earlier in March, the high school hosted a crime scene investigation morning, and later this month, it will hold Stem activity days led by the RAF and Royal Navy Education Programme Roadshow.
