Bolton University STEM Event

On Monday 13 June 2022, 12 students from years 8 and 9 took part in a STEM event at Bolton University. The activities on offer allowed the students to gain hands on experience with real-life equipment such as medical equipment for checking heart rates and temperatures. They were also tasked with programming a robot and using an e-fit programme to construct a face as the police would when taking statements from eyewitnesses. The students thoroughly enjoyed the day and were able to gain an insight into the everyday applications of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

Y7 Football Team Success (and again)

The year 7 Football team played Holy Family Catholic High School from Liverpool on Thursday 13th January. This fixture was in the last 32 of the English school’s cup, nearly 800 teams originally entered.  The game was so tense, few goal scoring opportunities arose for both teams. Holy Family nearly stole the victory but thanks to a sliding challenge from Joe Hodgkinson to prevent the ball crossing the goal line, meant the game went to extra time. Unity had the best chance of the game when Morgan Shapland went clean through on goal with 2 minutes of extra time remaining
