Award Winning Teacher - Dr Caroline Neuberg

Fulneck School is delighted to announce that our Head of Science and Assistant Principal Dr Caroline Neuberg has been awarded the Royal Astronomical Society’s Patrick Moore Medal in recognition of her achievement in teaching geophysics.

The highly prestigious award is made for a particularly noteworthy contribution to astronomy or geophysics by school teachers.
The RAS said ‘Dr Neuberg has been a tireless and enthusiastic promoter of geophysics and astronomy to both hundreds of school children and other physics teachers over the last ten years.
She leads a programme of installing seismometers in schools alongside associated training workshops for students and teachers. She initiated a similar programme and installed 10 seismometers in Maori schools in New Zealand. In astrophysics, Caroline leads a project which attracts students from Leeds primary and secondary schools, using microscopes to look at the rocks.
Caroline clearly inspires students and teachers alike, both in this country and overseas, and is a very worthy winner of the Patrick Moore Medal.’
Fulneck School’s Principal, Paul Taylor, congratulated Dr Neuberg on her recognition. “Caroline is a very humble person, and is thrilled and embarrassed in equal measure by this award. She inspires our pupil through her passion for all-things physics and spreads her gold-dust through her work with the Ogden Trust and local schools. Caroline also runs our impressive programme for High Achievers. Our pupils are incredibly fortunate to be taught by a professional with such expertise, charisma and total dedication to enriching their lives.”
Fulneck School is an independent day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 3-18, founded in 1753. For enquiries about places, please contact
