Science Learning Network

Science Learning PartnersKendrick School is part of the Science Learning Network providing professional development and support for science teachers and technicians across for Bracknell Forest, Reading, West Berkshire and Wokingham.  The support is available to both primary and secondary schools.

As well as offering a range of courses we can offer bespoke support and CPD activities tailored to your school.  Impact Awards, bursaries provided by the Department for Education to support CPD, are available for most of our activities to make them affordable to schools.

Booking for individual courses will go through The Science Learning Network website and you will be asked to register with them.
