Year 11 Revision Session with Dr. Steve Fossey from UCL

Over 60 Year 11 students had the privilege of a revision session from Dr Steve Fossey, an astronomer from UCL.  The main topics covered were from the P7 Module - Studying the Universe to help prepare the students for their upcoming GCSE physics exam. Dr Fossey even brought his H-Alpha telescope so the students were able to view the Sun safely.  We were  able to observe a large filament of gas that had become detached from the Sun.  Many thanks to Dr Fossey for taking time out of his busy schedule to help our year 11 students.
