The Wonderdome is coming....

Would you like to help us celebrate the 50th anniversary of man landing on the moon on July 16th 1969?

The Duchess's Community High School Charitable Trust, in association with the Enviresearch Fund Community Foundation Tyne and Wear & Northumberland, proudly invites local primary school students (from year 4-6) to visit the Wonderdome on the 15th July and 16th July.

The Wonderdome is a fascinating, fun and interactive School Mobile Planetarium which takes the learners on a journey through the Milky Way. The use of the completely dark inflatable planetarium makes for an amazing 360-degree immersive experience which is awe inspiring.

The event will take place between 16:30 and 18:00, every child will have a 30 minute experience inside the dome (unfortunately parents have to wait outside.) We ask that each child provides a donation of £1.50 towards the cost of hosting the dome.

Duchess's Greenpower team, with the support of the Design Technology, Engineering and Science departments will be supporting the event with a robot raffle, drawing competition, space face painting and science gadget shop to raise money towards future STEM events for the school and local community., so don't forget to bring some pocket money.

The competition winning Lego and Vex Robotics teams will also be demonstrating our out of this world robots skills and the science department showing off some exciting experiments. Tea, coffee and cake will also be available.

There are 90 spaces available on each date, click the link and fill in the form to book a place, you will need to repeat this for each child attending. The event is first come first served, if you need to cancel a ticket for any reason please contact

Your details will be used for staff organising this event only and not shared with any outside agencies. DCHS will not directly profit in any way from the donation or activities taking place, all funds will go towards running future STEM events for the school and local community.

One small step for man, one giant leap for DCHS.
