Year 12 pupils Ibrahim Faruqi, Shaun Kapur, Ian Leung and Ankit Mehta were awarded maximum marks in their Engineering Education Scheme project.
The boys’ brief, set by Lovell Partnerships, was to design a solution to the problems of fire safety in the construction of timber frame housing. Colin Clifton, regional director for the EES praised the team on their project and acknowledged he had only seen a perfect score once before in the 10 years he has directed the scheme.
The panel was so impressed with the team’s proposals that their report is to be sent to the Health & Safety Executive for the findings to be assessed.
The boys also achieved the prestigious CREST gold award for engineering excellence.
