We will base our work on all local schools including WGS, MSHG, MGS, Bolton Boys and Girls, St Bedes, Bury and Bridgewater etc. We will also work on our interview skills and public speaking presence.
In Numeracy we will be fully focused upon the Manchester Independent Consortium Examinations. We will also base our work on all local schools including WGS, MSHG, MGS, Bolton Boys and Girls, St Bedes, Bury and Bridgewater etc.
We will cover a wide variety of topics related to these examinations – including algebra, time speed and distance, conversion graphs and GL work in Mathematics and NVR.
As Scientists we will be studying The Earth and Space – in essence looking at how we fit into the cosmos and how the cosmos affects us.

All aspects of space will be covered and a portfolio of knowledge will be collected and displayed.
