Bronze Medal in Girls' Regional HockeyChampionship
The Lambrook girls’ Under 11 hockey team played superbly against the best in the Southern region last Thursday to take the bronze medal against some stiff competition at Woking Hockey club.
The girls fought hard against schools from as far afield as Oxford and Sussex and conceded only four goals in the whole tournament and losing only two of their eight matches – a terrific performance.

As part of the scholars’ programme for the Summer term, scholars who have recently completed their examinations were invited to the QinetiQ Schools Day last Friday. The day was aimed at offering children the experience to see real science, engineering and technology in action through the UK’s largest research and technology organisation. Pupils also had the opportunity to speak and ask questions to technology experts about science, engineering and future careers. QinetiQ scientists were also able to share their passion for science and offer real relevance outside of the classroom to the next generation. Pupils had a chance to tour QuinetiQ’s space lab. The T5 and T6 ion thrusters developed by the company are ten times more efficient than the chemical engines traditionally used to propel spacecraft making some deep space missions possible for the first time. For the European Space Agency’s first mission to Mercury in 2015, the engines make the mission possible by counteracting the sun’s gravitational pull. QinetiQ also provided an opportunity for scholars to tour and interact with their Training and Simulation Services. Pupils also had the chance to fly their own Chinook, courtesy of the £2m Royal Air Force flight simulators. These currently deliver potentially life-saving pre-deployment training for UK forces before they leave for Afghanistan to enable soldiers (and Lambrook pupils) to experience the complexities of controlling aircraft, artillery and other assets within a safe, simulated environment. - Read more >>
