Pupils reach for the stars


Sixth form students Danny Chang and Tony Fan are pictured with Cath Harding alongside the new telescope.

Pupils at Sibford School are reaching for the stars following the delivery of a state-of-the-art telescope.

The computerised Celestron NexStar 6SE Schmidt-Cassegrain Reflector Telescope can help locate planets and stars at the touch of a button.

It was purchased after the school received a cash donation … which stipulated that it was to be used to enhance the science provision at the Quaker-run school.

Head of Science, Cath Harding, said: “The new telescope will be used to enable us to run astronomy workshops with our science students.

“It will provide them with a fantastic opportunity to observe stars, planets and deep-space objects using equipment that is not often found in schools.”
