Collaboration with Epsom College

Last week Mr Watts, Head of Science, took our sixth form physicists to a lecture at Epsom College as part of our on-going partnership between the two physics departments.

Students enjoyed a lecture on 'how to design a winning boat for the America’s Cup' - ‘Like an aeroplane on water’.

The lecture was presented by Andy Claughton - World leading naval ship architect; involved with designing for America’s Cup teams over a number of years. Andy currently heads up the design team for LandRover BAR – Ben Ainslie’s attempt for the America’s Cup.
