Mr Orr from the Physics department recently received the prestigious Teacher of Physics award from the Institute of Physics at an awards ceremony in London. The Teachers of Physics award celebrates the success of secondary school physics teachers who, by their outstanding practice in the classroom have raised the state of physics and science in schools. Individuals are honoured alongside distinguished research scientists and industrialists.

In this way we recognise that without dedicated teachers there would be no physics research community or technological base in our society. Congratulations to Mr Orr for his continuing outstanding contribution to Physics education.
