RASTRICK High School pupils made it to the finals of a major design competition.
Two teams of Rastrick High students - one from the Sixth Form and the other from Year 9 - took part in the national final of the F1 in Schools contest at London's Olympia exhibition centre, but failed to win.
The contest was founded by BAE Systems and Jaguar and is supported by many other national firms.
It encourages youngsters to design, build and test model racing cars.
The six Year 9 students competed in the 11 to 14 age range and the five Sixth Form students were in the 16-plus age category.
The teams were judged on their model cars' race performance, safety, aerodynamics, appearance, engineering, quality and accuracy of manufacturing and presentation skills.
The judges were all members of the professional motor racing industry.
The Rastrick pupils were among 30 teams picked from 10 regional heats.
Their design teacher, Angela Whitham, said they had done well.
She added: "It was our first time there and very overwhelming. The other teams seemed to have done it all before. The students deserve some recognition as it was a really big thing to get there.
"The students want to try again next year. They have already decided what to make."
