A team of nine RAF personnel descended on Hanham Woods Academy to deliver a day of STEM and coaching activities.

All 165 students in Year 10 took part in the  action-packed programme of challenges. Set a number of tasks, students built towers within time limits and completed activities to encourage communication and team working skills. 

The RAF netball team from Brize Norton also spent time with Hanham Woods Year 10 & 11 netball teams, coaching, discussing tactics and playing games against them.

The event was part of an ongoing partnership between the academy and the RAF,  which has sponsored Hanham Woods netball team by supplying professional kit and equipment.

Allen Williams, Raising Attainment coordinator, said: “It is important that the Academy works with a range of outside agencies and organisations to give our students a range of experiences that may inform them of the options available and to broaden their horizons. It encourages me to see students really engaged and involved in activities they may not have considered before.”
