Recently a group of our Year 9’s represented Blackpool Schools  in  the North West Championship Grand Final of ‘Make It in Manufacturing’ Competition, having won through from the Lancashire heat last term.

Challenged with designing and marketing a passenger aircraft, the pupils worked really hard all day on a task that (at points)  had the teacher’s table stretched!

The final was held at  Old Trafford with over 20 teams competing and although we didn’t win it was a great experience . Especially if you were a Manchester United  fan, no one could have failed to be impressed by the venue!
