Our Community / School and Charity Partnerships


The course is organised and run in partnership between St Paul’s School, the Institute of Physics and Queen Mary University of London. It brings to life the complex subject of particle physics through a series of workshops and lectures led by teachers and academic researchers. The course will demonstrate the importance of the field across the sciences, engineering and computer science.

This unique course is open to 24 non-fee paying school pupils from across the UK and is entirely free to attend. A maximum of three pupils from any one school will be selected and places will be allocated on the basis of a simple application form requiring a short statement from both pupils and teachers. As this course takes place during term time approval must be given by the pupil’s school, otherwise they cannot attend. We particularly encourage pupils with a keen interest in STEM and particle physics to apply.

To apply please download and complete the application form including all signatures, and then return to Janet Mee via email (JCM@stpaulsschool.org.uk) or by post (Janet Mee, St Paul’s School, Lonsdale Road London SW13 9JT). The application deadline is Thursday 28 March, applications received after this date will not be considered.
