The first term at Logic finished in style with our 2nd PBL Week! This week Year 10 have visited DHL and looked at the Business of Geography; experienced the Spanish themed Picasso exhibition at the National Gallery and taken part in a Central London based treasure hunt. A cooking competition saw students work in small groups to plan and cook healthy meals, guided by ‘Head Chef’, Principal Jay Lockwood. They were then scored on presentation, culinary skills and taste to judge the winners!

Year 12 started the week with a 2-day Apprentice Challenge, culminating in a Christmas Fayre for parents, friends and business partners. Students planned designed and created Christmas themed gifts that were then sold to our guests to raise money for charity. Students had a budget when producing their products, and had to consider the marketing and promotion of their stalls. This week students have also used Adobe Premiere Pro to create their own videos on ‘The First 100 Days at Logic’; attended a Digital Skills careers event, and taken part in a range of exciting trips to London.

Year 12 Visit SAP Technologies
Year 12 students recently visited SAP Technologies as part of Logic’s Employer Engagement programme. The programme includes a visit to a different business every Wednesday, the aim being to expand students’ knowledge, understanding and awareness of local employers and develop relevant personal skills and a network that will support them when they leave Logic.
SAP is a major name within the technical systems sector, working with organisations including the NFL and McLaren race cars. During the visit students spent part of the morning driving a F1 race car simulator, as well as playing computer based games linked to American Football and Tennis. Students went on to deliver a presentation, having completed a Blue Sky thinking task in which they had to sell products such as bikinis to Eskimos, meat to vegetarians and broken glass. The aim was to test their ability to think outside the box – some ideas were so far outside the box it was unbelievable!
