College teams up with Bath University

Able and ambitious students at Frome College now have the opportunity to work with the prestigious University of Bath.

From early this month they can now  be involved  in a series of innovative and exciting projects, designed to stretch and challenge more able students, and to share a passion for learning.

50 students from Years 9 and 10 will team up in the college’s Frome Futures Centre to work with talented academics from the University of Bath for 12 weeks of learning during Wednesday twilight sessions after college as part of the Gifted and Talented Academy.

Students will gain invaluable skills in effective participation, creativity and critical thinking skills during two six week projects.

The Year 9 students will develop their presentation skills while learning about renewable energies. They will also have the chance to build their own wind turbines and solar panels in an engineering course.

During the second series of workshops, students will learn about how businesses are formed and will design their own product to present to a ‘Dragons Den’ style panel of experts.

The Year 10 students will learn about the physics of sound, light and buildings and will design their own music festival.  They will also participate in a social science project and will present posters of their work.

Both groups will have an opportunity to celebrate their work and present it to family members.

The college is delighted to provide these opportunities for students. The partnership with The University of Bath is a great opportunity for students to work with the world class University.
