Broadoak Mathematics and Computing College hosted an open event where each subject was showcased.

Maths puzzles were on offer while the English department had a time machine theme going through the ages with literature.

The science department was home to eye-catching displays using fire and a heart dissection, while one geography classroom was transformed into a disaster zone with lighting and smoke.

There were performances from the school’s drama students, while the school’s head boy and head girl, Dylan and Maddie, began the evening with speeches.
