On 13th July we had our very own CSI event in school led by the Criminology, Science & Performing Arts Departments, with a serving CSI and local police officers supporting. Year 12 Criminology students and some Year 10 students interested in the career area, donned their crime scene suits and were led around a mock crime scene set up in the Abbey grounds. Students learned about photographing a crime scene, how to set up a cordon, using different forensic science equipment and analysing the techniques and the roles of different professionals. They then had to determine what could have happened in the lead up to the crime and hypothesise the cause of death. Drama students also completed a performance of a fake news report live from the scene.

In the afternoon, our students hit the science labs for some hands on experience to learn how to measure blood spatter, determine blood types and how to carry out finger printing. One student said “I think it was really informative on what it would look like if you progressed in that career area. I really enjoyed it!"  

Well done to all involved, what an amazing experience!





A group of our brilliant Sixth Form students have raised money for a feasibility study into improving road safety around the school. The students collaborated with local businesses and the primary school and wrote to parents requesting support, raising the £500 needed. The students are passionate about preventing incidents so that all students can feel safe on their way to and from school and other community members can also feel safe at busy times.
