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

Science Mark was created by STEM Learning to recognise and celebrate best practice in science departments across the UK.

Schools and colleges receive the Science Mark when they can show that they are delivering inspiring lessons for students and demonstrate their department’s commitment to high-quality science education.
