We were delighted to have the opportunity to host a Diamond-themed science workshop on Wednesday 3 December 2014 in the Shaftesbury Building at the 6th form College.

How to add some sparkle to your career! Our Guest speaker was Jane Disborough. Jane studied materials science at Cambridge University before training as an accountant. She then moved to work for De Beers, the world-famous diamond dealers and jewelers.

Jane has worked in all aspects of the ‘diamond pipeline’ from mining, manufacturing, marketing and retail, working in Botswana, South Africa and London.

Jane now runs her own online diamond jewellery brand, Addicted Diamonds

Jane Disborough spoke to our students before some break-out workshops led by our science department which explored giant covalent structures and the refractive index. Jelly tots and invisibility cloaks!
