We are looking to hold a summer party to celebrate the end of the year and say goodbye to those who are leaving for work, university or further study. We need students to form part of a committee to organise this event. Kat Haley, Year 2 Level 3 Business is looking for volunteers to support her. If you are interested, please come and speak to Sian Ellis in Room 111 for details.

Technology gives students augmented glimpse of Eclipse

Child Care students using smartphone app to see eclipse

When thick cloud cover obscured the highly anticipated solar eclipse on Friday 20 March 2015, students turned to technology to get a rare glimpse of the astronomical phenomenon. The 85% partial eclipse promised to plunge West Berkshire into semi-darkness but weather conditions on the morning meant many were left disappointed.

Students did however get to see the event via an augmented reality app which uses GPS coordinates to precisely line up stars, planets and other celestial bodies in real time.
