New observatory to inspire pupils at Long Eaton school

A new £60,000 observatory has opened to students at a comprehensive school in Derbyshire.

The Malcolm Parry Observatory at The Long Eaton School took six months to build and was paid for by private grants.

The school said it would help and inspire students who have taken GCSE and A-level courses in physics and astronomy.
