The Cotswolds Partnership has had another 
successful year. Highlights include our annual
 Physics Factor competition for KS3 in National
 Science Week and our ever-popular public lecture.
This year astrobiologist, Dr Lewis Dartnell, ran an
 Oxbridge style masterclass for our KS4 & 5
 students before he delivered our annual lecture 
"How to survive an Apocalypse" to a packed hall.
The Royal Institution trained some of our Year 12
 students to run a "Maths for Physics" Masterclass
 series for gifted & talented primary pupils. This was a successful scheme and we will be extending it to surrounding clusters in the
 Autumn term. Our twilight CPD meetings are 
held termly and this year we have had a focus on
 the Core Practical aspect of the new A-level. As a cluster, we have devised an "Introduction to A-level Practical" event for our new Year 12s in September. Professor Becky Parker was the guest speaker at our summer twilight where she launched the Institute of Research in Schools project for our cluster plus other schools from the region.
