After excelling at Barney, Joe will go on to study Engineering at university

Budding engineer Joe Roff will be following in family footsteps when he embarks on the next chapter of his life.

He is to read a MEng in mechanical engineering at Leeds University after securing three A*s and a D1.

“My dad is an engineer so I have grown up with it,” said Joe. “I have always enjoyed maths and physics so it made perfect sense to go into engineering. I haven’t decided what type of engineering yet and will just see what happens in Leeds.”

Joe joined Barney in Year 7 and became involved with football, rugby, athletics and squash. “The home learning programme was great during the pandemic and I think it will stand me in good stead at university when you are expected to do more independent study,” he said.
