School of Physics and Astronomy
Outreach and Schools Liaison

Outreach front page

We very much value our contacts with teachers and pupils in primary and secondary schools and colleges and are continually developing links, activities and resources which we hope will enrich the school curriculum and support Physics Education.

We organise activities for students and teachers visiting the University and also take activities out into schools and colleges. At a variety of levels, we aim to give  insights into current research, explain degree and career options and generally enthuse the next generation to study Physics and Astronomy! Please download our flyer.pdf and display these at your school.

If you are a teacher or a home-educator, please join our relevant mailing list to receive a monthly newsletter with upcoming events for you and your student-learners.


If you would like more information please don't hesitate to contact our team, who will be happy to discuss different options for taking part in our events. We look forward to making links with you and your school!

During our outreach events we expect:

  • Participating students to be accompanied by teachers or other school staff at all times
  • Teachers/staff to hold medical information of participating students during the visit
