Thank you for giving me a great start at TCC History and for being a great teacher.

Principal's Message

9 October 2017

I would like to bring your attention to the recent success of Thurston Community College within the curriculum areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

We have this week been awarded a certificate in recognition of the College’s commitment to encouraging and inspiring young people in STEM subjects through STEM Ambassadors.

Last term, you may be aware that two teams from Thurston Community College, supported by our Design Technology Teacher Jess Debnam, were successful at the annual TeenTech Awards.  TeenTech is an organisation which aims to help young people to understand the opportunities available in the science, technology and engineering industries. Teams of students from across the UK compete to find innovative and creative solutions to real life problems.

Following on from last term’s success, winners of the energy category Max Berry and Alex Richardson were invited back to the Royal Society on 27 September for a Sustainability showcase.  The students met with Lonnie Johnson, an American engineer and entrepreneur with a keen interest in sustainability.  Having displayed their work, our students talked confidently about their idea, E-Den, a sustainable mobile home, allowing families to live ‘off-grid’.  They received keen interest and feedback and Max and Alex now plan to continue to improve their idea in order to gain a patent before speaking to companies.

On Thursday 12 October Alex and Max, along with other TeenTech winners, will go to Buckingham Palace to meet with HRH Duke of York to discuss their idea and receive £1,000 for the College.  Well done, Alex and Max!

Students at Thurston Sixth: Beyton Campus, who are members of our STEM Faculty, have begun the new year in earnest as they attend enrichment Masterclasses to support their learning across these four curriculum areas.

Have a good week!
