We have had several planning meetings since September 2016 and have also had a sixth form lecture on Crystalline Structure given by a solid-state physicist from UCLan.

This term we are running a Planetarium Day for Year 8 pupils where six of the seven schools are to send groups to visit a planetarium which will be based at one of our partnership schools for the day. We have also planned an observatory visit to the Alston Observatory at Longridge. This is for Gifted & Talented Year 10 pupils. There will be a Physics Olympics Day and a Jodrell Bank visit in the summer term.

Schools with sixth forms will be invited to attend a Masterclass on Medical Physics to run later this term.
