Extended Schools - Science and Engineering Clubs - Amersham



Following a successful visit to a science and engineering club in Cornwall, newly-appointed head of science Gemma Beacon visits The Amersham School in search of further inspiration.

Gemma also identifies seven key concepts that make Amersham's club an exceptional science and engineering club.
