Y12 Science Trip – Water Park Adventure Centre

Science Trip
On Friday 2nd December Y12 Science students and Science staff went on an A level consolidation and team building weekend to Water Park Adventure Centre in the Lake District.

On Friday evening students took part in study skills sessions and later in the evening played pass the parcel (thanks Mrs Murray).

On Saturday, students went ghyll scrambling and took part in A level Science booster sessions. Saturday evening was spent videoing the SMCA Sixth Mannequin Challenge; keep your eyes on the website for further details.

Sunday morning was spent climbing, canoeing and kayaking. Both staff and students had a fabulous time and we look forward to taking next year’s Y12 Scientists.

For more details about A level Science please contact Miss Jones.  You can see more photos from the trip in the gallery.

6th Form Sports Academy Pupils get a visit from Cumbria University


On Tuesday Cumbria University visited SMCA to deliver a performance analysis session to the 6th Form Sports Academy. Pupils were required to measure their speed, analyse their technique and suggest changes to improve. They also learnt about the different sport courses on offer at Cumbria University. A great session enjoyed by all.
