The Design & Technology department offer a number of extra curricular opportunities for students wishing to develop their interest in engineering.
Formula 24 Racing Team
Inspiring engineers and racing drivers of the future, our very own Greenpower Formula 24 gives students from Year 7 upwards the opportunity to be engineers/mechanics/pit crew/drivers in their very own racing team. The team take care of every aspect of maintenance and development of their 'Carbon QT' electric car, racing it in regional and national events on well known race circuits across the country. Involvement in the team requires commitment from the students but the enjoyment and benefits that they gain from it are immeasurable. You can find out more about the Greenpower team, and read about their latest news on their blog.
