Over the last weekend in April 2022, a group of Year 9 pupils traveled to Telford to compete in the National Championships for Vex Robotics. The team worked extremely hard to achieve what they did and demonstrated resolve, ambition and innovation, placing 6th overall and winning the VEX National Innovate Award! 

Thank you to all those 1876 Fund donors who enabled the School to purchase the Vex Robotics kits over the last few years and incorporate this subject typically beyond the curriculum to be integrated into the teaching at John Lyon.
