An invention by doctors at the University of York and Addenbrooke's Hospital could revolutionise the way children's vision is tested. Their design tracks children's eye movements on a TV screen.
It could help prevent blindness by detecting early problems with peripheral vision caused by conditions such as brain tumours. Kidz eyez has already won an NHS innovation award and its inventors hope it could soon be arriving at a hospital near you.
The University of Sheffield has made Parliamentary history by offering a module that is accredited and co-taught by the House of Commons.
The module, as part of the Politics Department undergraduate degree, will teach about how policies affect the history and future of assemblies and legislatures around the world. Students will get a "behind the scenes" experience of the House of Commons next month.
A Sheffield student who achieved top grades says home education can work right up to A level.
Very few home-educated pupils continue to learn in this way past GCSEs.
But Eli Ingle, 19, achieved two A stars - in business studies and sociology - and has now found out he has an A in psychology.
He said he thought about going back to college for A-levels but he and his family had enjoyed his home education so much he wanted to carry on.
Mr Ingle, who is the grandson of well-known Sheffield boxing trainer Brendan Ingle, has been educated at home since the age of 13. His sister Niamh, 17, who has also been home-educated, got an A in sociology and a B in psychology.
Provisional results for York school sixth forms show that 28% of entries were awarded A star/A grades, which are higher than the national figure. Over 78% of entries were given a top grade of A star, A, B or C.
We would like to congratulate all young people, schools and families on their achievement this year. Once again, York pupils have produced an excellent set of A level results and we are absolutely delighted for them. It is important to remember the impact of each individual student’s results on plans for their future – and we wish them all every success as they embark upon the next stage of their lives”.
A level students at the Grammar School at Leeds are celebrating a record set of results with 99.9% of students gaining a pass at grades A* to E; 79% achieving passes at grades A* to B; and 55% at A* and A. Seventeen students achieved A* grades in three or more subjects.
