Professor Ralph Pite from University of Bristol visited Tewkesbury Academy to talk to staff about ‘Literature and the Environment and the Natural History GCSE.
The talk was an insightful, inspiring and memorable CPD event. Present at the talk were members of the Science department, English and Art departments, plus a group of A-Level students.
The GCSE called ‘Natural History’ will be implemented by the Government to start in schools in September 2025. Becci Rowberry, English Teacher and visit organiser stated: “We are all hopeful it would still include Arts and the Humanities, along with Science and Geology, to help teach a new generation of children how to look after the environment, in all its past and future forms.”
