We are delighted to announce that the Ogden Trust, a charitable trust that exists to promote the teaching and learning of physics, has accepted our proposal to be the hub school in the Hammersmith area for a primary and secondary school partnership. Godolphin and Latymer will be one of the first to have partnerships with both secondary and primary schools coming together sponsored and supported by the Ogden Trust. Through collaborative enrichment and enhancement activities, working with families, developing career awareness and supporting teacher CPD, the partnership will support more pupils to develop a physics identity – to believe they can be a scientist and to see what studying physics can mean to them.
Our partner schools include the West London Free School, Kensington Aldridge Academy, and Brackenbury, Lena Gardens, John Betts, and Wendell Park Primary Schools. We had our first meeting to discuss the plan for the year which includes a joint Planetarium day, Science Museum talks, family competitions, science fairs and much more. This is extremely exciting and builds on the work of our ‘community and partnerships’ programme, creating strong relationships between the local schools and supporting the teaching of Physics.
