STUDENTS from the school competed against their peers to complete a rail disaster challenge.
Forty pupils from year nine built a replacement railway bridge to support an existing track using everyday items including paper, string, nuts and bolts.
Winners Laura Packham, Alice Vaughan-Williams and Kyran Underhill won a four-day residential course with Smallpiece Trust at Batch University, which they will be attending with regional winners from all over the south of England.
During the course, the students will work with engineers from leading railway companies to design and build trains and railway systems.
They will tackle real-life scenarios and will need to work within a budget to make their project commercially viable.
