We are proud to announce the opening of the Discovery Centre which consists of two new science labs.  These new facilities will ensure that our students are able to study the practical aspect of science in the best possible environment. We are grateful to the Wolfson Foundation and Ogden Trust for their generous contributions to the project. The Wolfson Foundation is an independent charity that awards grants to support and promote excellence in the fields of science, health, education and the arts & humanities and we are very grateful for their contribution of £30,000. The Ogden Trust is a charitable trust that exists to promote the teaching and learning of physics and we are grateful for their contribution of £20,000. As an Institute of Physics Lead School, we run CPD sessions for teachers from schools through-out the region and we are delighted to be able run the sessions in such wonderful new facilities.
