In the news

The opening of the observatory has attracted quite a lot of publicity over the past few days.

The television coverage featured on East Midlands Today and regional news bulletins is now available online here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-derbyshire-16610026, and the audio feature from BBC Radio Derby can be found here: http://www.longeaton.derbyshire.sch.uk/media/radioderby170112.mp3

Year 9 TLES students also produced their own reports, in preparation for BBC School Report day later this term. You can see their work, including a video interview with Mr Patrick, here: http://www.longeaton.derbyshire.sch.uk/report/

In the print media, the Malcolm Parry Observatory appeared in the Derby Telegraph last week. You can read the full article here:
