MALMESBURY School has been awarded the prestigious Platinum Science Mark, in recognition of the excellent work undertaken by the science department.

The Science Mark was created by STEM Learning to recognise and celebrate the best practice in science departments across the UK, and only a handful of departments receive the accolade when they can show they are delivering inspiring lessons for students and demonstrate their commitment to high-quality science education.

Professional development leader at STEM Learning, Adam Little, said: “We are delighted to congratulate Malmesbury School on receiving the Platinum Science Mark.

“Being awarded Science Mark is such a prestigious achievement because the assessment process is so rigorous, ensuring the programme is a true hallmark of quality science teaching.

“Each school and college who receives Science Mark has demonstrated a real and ongoing commitment to excellent science education in their school. Malmesbury School is a great example of this.”

Head of Science at Malmesbury School, Gabrielle Peers-Dent, said: "I am thrilled that Malmesbury School's Science Faculty has been awarded the STEM Learning Platinum Science Mark. This is a testament to all of the hard work of the exceptional staff and students who, together, strive for the best."
