The second Blow Your Mind day of the academic year included a forensic science investigation and Year 7 press conference.

"Last year we introduced Blow Your Mind as an enrichment programme for High Achieving Pupils (HAPs), it was very successful and the student feedback about it was very positive," explained Mrs Beacham, Assistant Vice Principal (HAPs).

"Each teaching cycle selected HAPs from each year group work with a different department and do something they will not have the chance to do in normal lessons."

Year 7s are learning all about journalism with Plymouth Herald reporter Katie Timms who studied at the College. They looked at a story about a lost pug and held their own press conference.

Year 7 Zara said:"It's been a lot of fun - I'm interested in journalism and I like writing stories."
