We are offering a wide range of support and opportunities next term.

Focus On Physics

If your school needs support in Physics this year, then we can help you.

There are several different pathways depending on what support you require

Please see our Physics newsletter for all the links to book;

Department Level Support

  1. Stimulating Physics Network

The network provides CPD, mentoring and coaching for physics departments and individuals developed in collaboration with dedicated physics experts, which aims to enhance subject knowledge and pedagogical understanding to enable better impact in the classroom. There is no cost to schools who wish to sign up for support.

Your coach will plan up to six bespoke sessions each year of CPD within the department

If you would like this support then please email and we will put you in touch with our SPN coach Amriss.

Partnership Support working with other local secondary schools

  1. Physics Enthuse Partnership

I am looking for a group of schools who would be interested in working together over two years to improve the teaching of Physics within their schools. The schools together would be given a budget of £20,000 for CPD and coaching. This exciting project is for any state funded secondary school in Bucks, Herts and Slough.

If you are interested please contact
