Phoebe and Leila's shooting was outstanding throughout and the girls racked up the goals. The whole team played well defensively to keep a clean sheet and thoroughly deserved to win. The Player of the match was Leila. Mr M Barnard https://t.co/or5YTMnrIz

Netball Year 7 - Beacon 15 - Reigate 0 The year 7 girls recorded their biggest win of the season so far away at Reigate. Despite the drizzly conditions, The Beacon were sharp and accurate in their passing and defence. https://t.co/iH9qj3Jt5K

A real combative performance from both sides meant it was close until the end when Jacob was put through on goal to make it 2-0 and game over. Beacon now face Glyn or Carshalton Boys in the next round! TGA https://t.co/IwXTbRTTHJ

It was not long before this paid off as Jack's flick at the near post meant the ball dropped nicely for George to spectacularly overhead kick the ball to loop over the goalkeeper to make it 1-0 Beacon; cue Beacon celebrations. https://t.co/bfZtDiJLkK

The threat of Jamie's long throw was evident in the first half so at half time a strategy was formed. https://t.co/5uKJQTWhWy

A few back to back injuries for Beacon meant we changed positions of players which actually allowed us to gain control of key areas of the pitch that Greenshaw had dominated at the start and also launch our own attacks. At half time it was an even 0-0. https://t.co/R4DV7nClr8

The year 11 football team marched on in the Surrey Cup thanks to a hard fought 2-0 victory over Greenshaw. The game started with Greenshaw slightly on top and creating a couple of chances but none to worry Ryan in goal. https://t.co/QcygRLDrkn

BEACON STEM NEWS AND COMPETITIONS

BEACON STEM NEWS AND COMPETITIONS  

A year since inception, BEACON STEM has continued to grow to over 65 students completing different STEM projects in Robotics, Food Science, Microbiology and many more.

We would like to start off this year by celebrating our end of year achievements.

BIEA 2021 STEM Competition

Congratulations to Erin and Elorm in Year 10 whose project on reimagined school lunch packaging was awarded the Outstanding Achievement Award in Social Impact. Erin and Elorm have continued to advocate for sustainability by thinking of scientific ways that everyday devices could be made more efficient. They, along with Harry in Year 10, are currently working on developing a water filter that uses properties of both charcoal and the inert material, sodium alginate, thus building a reusable water filtration column with sterilising properties. Congratulations Erin and Elorm! 

Imperial College STEM Potential Placements 

Every year, Year 10 students from around the UK compete for the few spots at the highly sort after Imperial College STEM Potential Placements. The Beacon are proud to report that we have a record ten applications going through for judging this year, this is up from two applications last year. Students have had to write personal statements to justify why they should be selected for the program and evidence what they have done in STEM to justify being considered. Projects, such as Liza’s analysis of pancake recipes and the chemistry behind their formulations and Brooke and the rest of team’s sustainable sanitary towel project, showcase the students’ passion for a future in STEM. We wish the students all the best in their applications.
