St Mary’s enters the BT young scientist competition every year. All year groups are welcome to enter, either as a group of two or three or individually. There are 4 different categories that the project can enter, biological and ecological sciences, chemical, physical and mathematical sciences , social and behavioural sciences and Technology. The closing date for entries is early September so anyone interested must contact Miss Caine at the beginning of the new school year. We have had great success in the last couple years, in 2016 we won 3rd place in the junior biological and ecological group and in 2019 we also won 3rd place in the intermediate biological and ecological group.
