Our class names this year are...

Each of our classes has been named after a world famous STEM hero.  We have been learning about this hero and we are teaching the school about our hero through our class assemblies.  We had the portraits below commissioned (see here) and you will find these, along with our learning about our hero, in our Rainbow Room.  Please ask us about our hero and why they are so special.

Stephen Hawking




"When Stephen Hawking was a little boy, he used to stare up at the stars and wonder about the universe. Although he was never top of the class, his curiosity took him to the best universities in England: Oxford and Cambridge. It also led him to make one of the biggest scientific discoveries of the 20th century: Hawking radiation."

Sir CV Raman




"Sir Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman, was an Indian physicist. He studied light scattering. He won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1930 for his work in this subject. He discovered that, when light passes through a transparent material, some of the deflected light changes in wavelength. This phenomenon is now called Raman scattering and is the result of the Raman effect."
