VRC Robotics Team Qualify for National Championship

Congratulations to our VRC Robotics Team on qualifying for the UK national robotics championship, which will take place later this year.

Since it’s inception, the team has gone from strength to strength.  They reached the semi-final stage and won an Innovate Award for ingenuity and innovation in their first competition and more recently in December the team finished in top place in the qualification round and won the overall competition at a tournament in Surrey.  These are remarkable accomplishments for the team and the School community and we are extremely proud of what they have achieved,  especially as they’ve faced some of the best in the UK.

We are very lucky to be able to provide opportunities such as these for our pupils who have an interest in robotics and programming thanks to the support of the 1876 Fund.  The Fund has enabled the purchase of robots, equipment and entry into the competitions and we are thankful to all in our community who have contributed to this success.

Here’s wishing the team the very best for their forthcoming challenge.
