A pair of budding scientists from a North Somerset school have earned a prestigious award.

George Rabin and Ed Thurlow, aged 14 and 15 respectively, of Churchill Academy have been named Young Scientists of the Year at a national competition.

The duo’s project on birds won praise at The Big Bang Fair in Birmingham.

Headteacher Chris Hildrew said the pair were a ‘credit’ to the school.

He added: “The boys presented their project to the senior staff and we were very impressed, not only by the quality of the science, but by the enthusiasm and skill.”
