Year 11 and Year 13 German students have enjoyed their first full day in Germany. After a tour of Bielefeld taking in views of the city from the Sparrenburg castle, Year 11 sampled Currywurst and ice cream before their return to school to meet partners for lunch. A late afternoon trip then ensued to the Dr Oetker factory, where they were joined by the 8 Year 13 students who had spent their first day on work placements with the mayor of Steinhagen, Klaus Besser, at a local newspaper, a travel agency and with two manufacturing companies.

Thirteen Sixth Form students took part in a rat dissection workshop at the Centre for Life on Friday. The students looked at the different organ systems of the rat, and were complemented by the demonstrator for their engagement and interest. Many of the students who took part will be applying for courses linked to medicine, veterinary science, and biology, so this experience will enhance their UCAS application greatly.
