This year we have had 35 class workshops for the Partnership, two Gifted & Talented days at Birmingham University, an inter-school Science Fair, Light & Sound CPD and more! The highlight of the year was definitely the talk by Michael Foale – a real live Astronaut, who spoke to over 300 super-excited Birmingham primary school children and 50 accompanying staff.

Science is going well at our schools and is well-respected. This year, three of our existing schools earned PSQM (plus Our Lady & St Kenelm and Tenterfields who have now spun off into their own Halesowen & Dudley Partnership). West Heath and St Michael’s are currently doing PSQM and the new Science Co-ordinator at Cofton Primary, previously did PSQM at Holywell.
