We want to invite you to our 'A' level Sciences Conference being held on 20th June at the Civil Aviation Authority, Crawley.

We often focus on GCSE’s and would like to extend our offer to 'A' level.  Jim Henderson (former London Headteacher and a teacher of ‘A’ level Physics since 1984) will be hosting the day along with Claire Davies (Assistant Headteacher and Lead of the Sussex and Surrey SLP).  

The cost of the conference is £120 for state funded schools – however we have added a Teacher Release Bursary for £70 meaning the conference only costs £50.  Please enter TRP2224 discount code when booking.

If you would like to also bring a colleague, we can offer you a buy one get one free option.  Please email quoting names and school and we will book you on.  Please ensure you are both registered with STEM
