FPL Lead Schools

Improve physics teaching in your school and local area

As an FPL Lead School, you will work with our team to raise standards in physics teachers across the local area, hosting CPD sessions and networking events. In return, we will support you to recruit the best physics teachers from our network of contacts, and provide expert coaching to develop a member of your staff into a leading physics teacher.

Lead schools will benefit from:
• Becoming the centre of a local network of schools
• Bespoke training to develop your staff into subject leaders
• Receiving support with the recruitment of physics NQTs

Lead schools will also have access to all the benefits of an FPL Partner School, which include:
• A tailored programme of training and CPD for teachers of physics
• Mentoring for physics NQTs

We are working with state-funded secondary schools in these target areas, which have been identified by the Department for Education as priority areas for education work.

This programme is funded by the Department for Education, so there is no charge to schools or teachers.
