Theresa May’s former school gets LED make-over

Wheatley Park School in Oxforshire, which sits on the site of Holton Park Girls' Grammar School, where UK Prime Minister Theresa May, then Theresa Brasier, sat her GCEs, has just received an LED re-fit.

Human-centric lighting represents a new way of using light in our lives, but there is some skepticism over its use and its effectiveness. Do we know enough about the technology, for example, to be using it in schools? Is there enough evidence to say that human centric lighting improves productivity at work?  Can HCL help to maintain a smooth circadian rhythm at home? 

In a 'Clash of the Lighting Titans' Lux's applications editor John Bullock (a HCL cheerleader) and our technical editor Alan Tulla (a sympathetic skeptic) sit down to compare and contrast their human centric lighting opinions.
