Pupils have spent the last term excelling in a range of subjects, from science and maths to politics and even music.

The Stamford Endowed Schools have enjoyed a packed term of academic activities.

Stamford Junior School choir sang their way to success in the Year 3 to 6 school choirs class of the Peterborough Music Festival.

The choir also won the Committee Shield for their rendition of “Ain’t it great to be crazy”, their second choral entry, The Lord Is My Shepherd, gained a certificate of distinction and soloists Rosie Harvey and Ben Lawrence were commended.

Junior school pupils also enjoyed a week of maths activities. Problem-solving tasks included growing garlic, looking at Pascal’s triangle and making tetrahedrons.

Junior school teacher Alison Crow said: “All the pupils thoroughly enjoyed the week and there was a buzz around the school throughout.”

Stamford High School pupils put their science skills on show to a public audience at the Cambridge Science Festival.

Year 9 pupils Naomi Ticehurst and Emily Watt explained their project investigating woodlouse behaviour.

And Year 12 pupils Molly Mitchell, Megan Komoto and Rachael Allan presented their investigation into the effectiveness of different antibacterial surface cleaners.

Head of Biology at Stamford High School Anne Johnstone said: ‘The girls were a real credit to the school and spoke with confidence to members of the public ranging from three-year-olds to retired professors.”

And at Stamford School the results of the first every politics essay competition were announced.

Year 12 pupil James Dodworth and Year 13 pupils James Leake were the two winning entrants. Head of politics Liz Salt said both essays were impressive pieces of work.
