Over the May half term, eighteen Lower Sixth students went on a three-day trip to the European nuclear research facility CERN in Geneva accompanied by Mr Green and Mr Monaghan.

The students were enthused to see real physics at work, and it was particularly exciting to get a tour by a working physicist at the facility. We ventured underground near the large Hadron collider – the 27-kilometre collider is the world’s largest particle accelerator, colliding protons or lead ions at energies approaching the speed of light. We were also lucky enough to see some amazing engineering!
