Year 11 – Stationery Packs

We are offering our Year 11 students the opportunity to purchase a stationery pack to assist them with revision for their up and coming mock exams as well as their final examinations in the summer term.
The pack contains the following items:

  • 1 x pack of felt tipped pens
  • 1 x blue, black, red, and green pen
  • 1 x ruler
  • 1 x pencil

  • 1 x pencil sharpener
  • 1 x blue, yellow, green and pink highlighter pen
  • 1 x pack of post-it notes

It is hoped this pack will help to motivate students to organise themselves and begin their revision with some useful tools. The clear zipper bag/pencil case is suitable for use during their GCSEs later in the year.

Year 9 Programming Challenge Launch

Year 9 Programming Challenge Launch

On Tuesday 31 October eight of our Year 9 G&T students attended the launch of the Programming challenge. The students were given a very broad brief, with the aim being to create a piece of software using Python software to help students in our school with their studies. No pressure!

The two teams will have to give a short presentation on their ideas behind the software and how it works at the finals day in December 2017. On the day a Project manager from Farnborough International gave the students insightful presentation on how he puts together the Farnborough Air Show and the process he has to go through with his team to create a successful event. It was fascinating and prompted a good deal of discussion amongst Yateley students on how to achieve such a complex task.

Yateley have two teams entered into the challenge and we look forward to what the finished product will be ready for December-17… watch this space!
