One of the slightly unusual requests to the PA last year was for funding for a telescope.

Mr Lutkins, head of science, is an avid stargazer and hopes to interest many of our pupils in the wonders of astronomy.

Year 1 spent some time with him last week as part of their theme ‘Light and Dark’. Luckily the moon was very visible in the morning and all pupils were able to get a good view of it through the telescope. They thoroughly enjoyed a novel experience.
