KES hosts 'Gifted and Talented' conference

On 28th September, twenty-two pupils from the Second Year along with fifty-eight pupils from other local schools attended the first 'Cogit-8' Gifted and Talented conference at KES. The pupils spent the day learning about philosophy and debate, working as a team to solve 'locked room' puzzles and were also entertained by guitar physicist Dr Mark Lewney. Dr Lewney, or the 'Rock Doctor' as he is also known, gave a highly entertaining and thought-provoking after school performance to pupils from the Upper School and Sixth Form. The talk covered some of the physics behind acoustics, quantum mechanics and superstring theory as well of a lot of rock guitar!
