Middlesbrough Achievement Partnership together with the Royal Navy launched a competition in December to design a new fighter aircraft for the Queen Elizabeth. The entry had to be in the form of a hand drawing which showed what the fighter would look like together with a suggested name for it.

Acklam Grange’s Design and Technology STEM group used the design process to gather the research necessary for the project, collecting data from internet searches and conversations with adults who had worked in the aircraft industry. STEM students also worked with our CCF group to decide on the name for the design. The folder submitted was sent to MAP who worked with Royal Navy representatives to decide on the winner.

The awards ceremony took place at Acklam Green on Tuesday 12 March where all schools were recognised including our MAT partner Linthorpe Primary School for their exciting entry. Acklam Grange School was judged to be the overall winner for their design entry: ‘Suppressor’ and one of our students, Louis Larder, was interviewed by Radio Tees.

We will now host other participating schools when we are visited by a Royal Navy Merlin helicopter when operational requirements allow so that students can experience for themselves aspects of modern Royal Navy kit.
