The popular club runs every Tuesday for years seven and eight students.

Pupil Amy Wilkinson said: "Science Club is great fun, you do really cool experiments. I like science and this has encouraged me even more."

Science teacher Emilie Greenwood said: "This is the second year of our Science Club and it's for students who have expressed an interest in science as they maybe look towards STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) careers.

"They enjoy it as they have more time to carry out experiments.

"They especially like making slime and fake blood!"
