Motor all the way…..!
It seems that the season of good will has not quite finished yet as this week The Peak Academy has generously been donated a car by Hilltop garage. Rhid Goddard, from Hilltop garage, kindly brought the car to the school this week and handed over the keys to the Yr10 students who are currently studying an ABC Level 1 Certificate in Motor Vehicle Studies. Using our fantastic mechanics bay facilities at the school the car can be stripped down, tested, fixed and ready to run again! Mr Richardson, the school’s motor mechanics teacher, said “This is a very generous gesture from a local business to help support the school in offering relevant practical skills that will help our pupils become more employable in the future”.
The motor mechanics bay has been busy this year with the majority of students in the school being able to have taster sessions and along with the “pit stop challenge” where pupils are timed to take off and replace a tyre there has been a strong sense of competition as well!! Through this and the GoKarts that are available at break and lunchtimes the hope is that more pupils will look to choosing this subject when selecting KS4 options.
