Worcester Sixth Form College students visit Ironbridge
This week, Travel and Tourism and Archaeology A level students visited the Ironbridge Gorge Museums. Students were investigating the impacts of tourism on the local community and the conservation of industrial heritage. Sian Leonard, second year student, said: "It was really interesting to see why Ironbridge was labelled as a UNESCO World Heritage site and it was enjoyable looking around the Victorian Town living museum."
Worcester Sixth Form College Science Centre Officially Opened
On 9th October 2014, Worcester Sixth Form College held celebratory events to mark the official opening of its new Science Centre.
The Centre, which consists of four state of the art laboratories and IT and study spaces, has been open for students since September, and was officially opened by Dr Lucie Green (Leverhulme Research Fellow Mullard Space Science Laboratory, University College London). Dr Green also delivered a lecture to students and invited guests about ‘Oscillations on the surface of the sun’ which was positively received by all who attended.
Michael Kitcatt, Principal, said: “This is a fantastic new facility, which will further enrich the experience of the growing number of students we have taking science subjects at Worcester Sixth Form College as well as enabling us to work even more closely with universities and science and technology based employers.” The new Centre will enable Worcester Sixth Form College to expand its already extensive links with employers, other colleges, training providers and HE in the area and will further enrich the experience of students taking Science subjects at the College.
