Stephen Hawking: born on the same day Galileo died, died on the same day Einstein was born. Pi day. Associated with greatness from birth to death. His contribution to science, culture and the world can never be quantified (or quantum-fied, should I say). Thankyou for the stars 💫

Retention is so complex especially in London. Happy to chat and exchange ideas.


We have 25% PPA time with rarely cover. And no, we’re not subsidised by a sponsor! It is possible.


Would love to hear more... can you DM

Suspect that all three keynotes at are going to focus on this important issue. Lots that heads in ALL settings can learn from what are up to!


Agreed. Myself and the Exec did that when we first took over. Half a day at least every support role. Gave huge insight and worth the time.


At staff briefing, thank with total honesty for behind the scenes effort like the premises team. Give them a round of applause even though they might not be there.


Thanks Andy. Would love to host you for a visit to swop ideas...

Love this poster - all schools should have a version of this up for the boys. Via


We're working an infographic T&L policy. Meanwhile here's our approach on assessment and feedback. No marking madness!

ELiSE – Europa life Submersible Explorer



EliSE is a robot submersible probe designed to search the under ice oceans of the Jovian moon, Europa. The current version of EliSE is powered by two 6VDC motors and two 40mm propellers. The depth that EliSE operates at is determined by diving planes and a movable lead ‘slug’ that alters the trim of the submarine. The direction of the submarine is determined by a twin rudder system. All diving planes, rudders and slug are positioned by two servos.

EliSE is controlled by a PICAXE 28X1 micro processor, on an AXE020 board. EliSE is re-programmable via a UFR/ERF radio link and has 2 sonars for navigation/hazard detection, multi-frequency lights, and on-board data logger to record experimental data and a wireless video camera. EliSE is also equipped with two external sample probes – a rock scraper to collect samples of any algal or bacteriological mats that may be growing on rocks and a floating partical sampler to collect any floating organisms.
