Not only do we live among the stars, the stars live within us

You may remember the first time looking up into the night sky and wondering how far does it stretch, is there anything else out there and where did it all come from? You may have been lucky to have owned a book or planetarium where you endlessly discovered stories of our nearest neighbours, peering into Saturn’s rings or Mars’s red glowing surface.

Joining Astronomy at Hautlieu will give you the opportunity to not just study our universe but importantly see and immerse yourself within it first-hand. You will be using the latest VR technology to guide yourself around structures within the universe. Alongside this you will develop your practical skills by spending time in the field. Students will collect astronomical data on planets, artificial satellites and constellations with guided learning on how to use an array of telescopic instruments. By the end of the course you will have the ability to lead to your own independent investigation undertaking your own personal observations.

In the past we have organised a range of exciting curricular opportunities such as regularly partaking in regional engineering and robotic competitions as well as sixth form trips to the UK where we visit various telescope including both radio and light this allows students to explore opportunities in the near future.

Outside of the class students have also been encouraged to join and engage in Hautlieu student radio setting up there very own space show. This has given students a platform to share their voice and interests as well as observations and learning from their studies with others at the school.
