Tributes paid to local teacher Phil Worsley

Joseph Whitaker technology teacher Phil Worsley passed away on November 6th 2019 having been diagnosed with advanced esophageal cancer in April 2019.

Phil is remembered for his enthusiasm for technology and the formation of Joseph Whitaker Young Engineers after school group.

Through Mr Worsleys guidance the Young Engineers hold a Guinness World Record for a rocket powered model car reaching a speed of 533.10 MPH.

Discovery Channel carried a nice piece regarding the world record which clearly shows Phil Worsley's enthusiasm.

Our club became involved with the group in a small way after making a donation from our Sarah Ellen Ball Trust Fund
