About 80 teachers spent a Saturday back at school to pick up ideas on how to make science come to life for their students.

Teaching staff from schools from across eastern England, including Spalding Grammar School, Peele Community College, Long Sutton, Bourne Academy and its sister school, Spalding Academy (formerly Sir John Gleed School), were represented at an Institute of Physics day held at The Deepings School.

Head teacher Richard Lord said: “The Deepings School was delighted to host the tenth annual East Midlands Physics Networking Day at our state of the art Science Centre.

“The Institute of Physics provided an inspirational programme of workshops during the day and I know, from talking to colleagues, how valuable they found this informative training.

“I congratulate Helen Pollard and her team from the Institute of Physics on the success of the day and thank them on behalf of all the teachers and technicians who attended, from across the region and further afield.“

Gary Williams, head of the East Midlands network of the Institute of Physics, said: “This was the first we had met at The Deepings School and it was fantastic that so many people gave up their time to make sure our students have a good education.”
