Congratulations to Henry Hammond, the winner of the Institute of Physics National Teacher Award. The work he and the science team have done, developing Physics both at APS and across North London has been recognised nationally. The Institute of Physics wrote a bio about Henry and we wanted to share some of this with you. This is a well deserved accolade for Henry and the science Team.
Henry is a highly creative and enthusiastic physics teacher who has had a truly transformative influence on the teaching of physics at his school, seeing outstanding growth in the A-level physics numbers and a big increase in separate sciences at GCSE, and inaugurating many external teacher professional development projects for both primary and secondary colleagues, as well as technicians.
He runs the North East London Science Learning Partnership and two local Ogden Trust partnerships, delivers teacher subject specialist training, hosts interns and trainees, and supports the development and delivery of Ogden Trust professional development across England.
