Rt Hon Michael Gove Secretary of State for Education - Physics Factory visit (Friday 27th April 2012)
Today the Rt Hon Michael Gove, Secretary of State for Education visited the Birmingham Physics Factory to see at first hand the incredible work that has been happening since opening in September 2009. He met members of the Physics Factory Board and a number of our sixth form Physics Factory Ambassadors.
In just under 3 years nearly 700 teachers have attended our training courses and nearly 200 different classes from over 50 schools have sent students to be taught by us.
Apart from the excellent examination results achieved there has also been a surge in the uptake of A Level Physics.
