Harris Academy St John’s Wood has been made a centre of excellence for science teaching in London.
The school has received an £80,000 award to become a Science Learning Partnership.
STEM Learning is a government-funded body that organises continuing professional development for science, technology, engineering and mathematics teachers.
The school will deliver sessions for schools in Brent, Camden, Ealing, Hammersmith and Fulham, Harrow, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Islington, Kensington and Chelsea, Richmond Upon Thames and Westminster.
It is holding a launch event after school on Monday, July 5. Guest speakers include Samantha Green, the school’s executive principal; Theo Spalding-McIntosh, head of biology at School21; and Dr Sam Sims, lecturer at UCL.
Ms Green said: “We see this as an opportunity to become a real centre of excellence for STEM. It is about more than just science – we will also deliver training on computing, maths and technology. We look forward to offering a rich and rigorous programme to teachers and technicians across central and west London.”
