About the award:

To celebrate Brenda Keogh’s memory, this award is given to two primary schools to help them enrich their science provision. The award is funded by Angel Solutions and presented by Millgate House Education and the ASE. The award aims to support schools with limited funding to make science a more enjoyable and engaging learning experience for their children.

The award is comprised of:

  • An ‘Enquiry Toolkit’ which includes science resources worth £600 provided by Timstar*
  • 1 day of consultancy from Millgate House Education to help set up enrichment activities worth £800
  • Selection of key ASE publications

The ASE will be looking for:

  • Schools which are new to ASE
  • Schools where science has had a low profile

  • An enthusiastic and possibly new Subject Leader
