Sixteen of our students have just been awarded the nationally accredited CREST Silver Award. They successfully completed six days of intensive training and work experience at Nissan Sunderland. The group were given a full day introduction to the Nissan plant and the varying job roles within the business before completing five days of team based activities which saw them design and test an assembly line for manufacture of cars. As two separate teams, they then applied improvement techniques to reduce the time to manufacture by a staggering 96% from their first run. Along the way they were given exposure to the following STEM disciplines – working in a Manufacturing and Engineering area; using principles and tools to aid workplace management; Quality and Inspection; Kaizen and 5S principles and the power of Teamwork. They demonstrated massive commitment, resilience and work ethic over the week. When asked about how well the teams worked and if any student deserved a recommendation, one of the Nissan trainers commented, “The attitude, manners and general behaviour of my group was a credit to your school. I got a great deal of satisfaction watching the group develop from the nervous clumsy teenagers they were on Monday, to the confident and competent team players they became by Friday. Not only that but we had a laugh along the way. As for awards, I don’t like to single individuals out because one bad one can ruin a group. To have a good group you need eight people to work well together, interact, listen and apply the lessons learned. And we certainly got that”.
A reminder that the last day at school before half term is Friday 25 October 2019. Half term week is from Monday 28 October until Friday 1 November 2019.
Monday 4 November 2019 is a Teacher Training Day so students are not expected back in school until Tuesday 5 November 2019.
Enjoy the half term break.

15 Year 10 students from King Edward’s took part in a STEMtastic event at Port of Blyth. The day was aimed at inspiring the students to consider their future – and possible careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths). RTC North collected together 25 companies, many world class businesses, all of whom were local to the area. The event encompassed the following sectors Subsea, Oil and Gas, Renewables and Energy including offshore generation.
The students had the chance to participate in a range of interactive workshops,
giving them hands-on examples of working in STEM. They were given tours of
some of the facilities in the port including Catapult , Global Marine and MHI
At ORE Catapult, the UK’s leading technology innovation and research centre for Offshore
Renewable Energy they met an ex King Edward’s student , Johnathan Hughes. Validation
Manager for ORE Catapult, Mr Hughes, described the type of activities that
happen at the site. The students were able to see an 88.4m wind turbine blade,
currently in Blyth for the XLBlade project. The project is investigating how to reduce
the overall cost of offshore wind through development of (at the time) the World’s Longest
Our students were enthused by the career possibilities shown to them and Mr
“The students from KEVI were amongst over 200 who visited ORE Catapult’s Blyth site as part of STEMtastic at Port of Blyth, it was good to hear challenging questions from KEVI pupils, who wanted to hear about the role of engineers who work in the Renewable Energy sector, and how Blyth was shaping the future of this global technology”.
