Year 10 make a great start at SFW!

Today the new intake of year 10 students at the Sir Frank Whittle Studio School, on their first day,  made quite an impression at the internationally renowned British National Motor Museum at Gaydon in Warwickshire.

As young Engineering Scholars they were astonished at the range of innovation on display at the museum and they were confident in questioning the volunteers working there about the technical, financial and social aspects of what was on display.

Engineering personnel from the museum thought that our students were from a private school and were hugely supportive of the focused technical and employment based education that started today. We were all really surprised at the quality of the exhibits, how close you could get to really rare and expensive vehicles and how friendly and knowledgeable the staff were.

We were made to feel very welcome at all times including lunchtime in a restaurant that also serves delegates meeting at the venue for conferences etc. We all felt it was great to see the efforts being put in by the staff there to reach out to very young students and encourage them to get excited by automobile engineering….none of us were brave enough to ask if we could balloon model a car in the family learning centre!

 All in all a top day out and a great opportunity for new students to get to know each other in a stimulating environment.
