The team, Vulcan, from the school based on Goddington Lane, took part in the finals of the Land Rover 4x4 in Schools Technology Challenge.

Made up of members Chris Nze, Ivan Tregear, Tarun Krishna, Misha Mcfeat and Tomi Adesanya, the team were delighted to be standing on the podium.

Rocky roads, tight bridges, hills and tunnels are just a few of the obstacles which their vehicle had to navigate on the test track.

Mark Wemyss-Holden, national project manager, said: “It has been two inspiring days.
