AWE Aldermaston invited the winners of their 2013 A-level Science Challenge for a tour of its Educational Collection.

Pupils from Kendrick all-girls school, based in Reading, had the chance to look round the educational resource, which provides an overview of UK defence history.

Mrs Theresa Conlon, a teacher at Kendrick, said: “The tour was an eye opener for them, as was coming to a site with such a high level of security.”
