Girls build a Westfield Car with The Springfields Academy

We are absolutely delighted to announce our latest Springfields/St Mary's partnership - we are building a car! The Westfield kit arrived at the Springfields mechanics suite three weeks ago; the overalls have arrived, the manuals read and now it is time to start assembling.

Our LVI (Year 12) Physicists are being taught the mechanics by Mr Smith and the Year 10 boys, with the girls modelling patience, team work and attention to detail. It really is wonderful to see the teams working together on such an ambitious project. They aim to finish building the car by next spring. Once it has passed the safety checks and tests the vehicle will be roadworthy (we hope!) and I am looking forward to my first outing in the passenger seat.
