    The Ogden Trust School Physics Partnership

    The Ogden Trust School Physics Partnership

    The Ogden Trust sponsors a number of School Physics Partnerships across the UK.   
     
    Our Head of Physics, Ms James is a Teacher Fellow for the trust and runs our partnership with Bromsgrove School, Saint Augustines & Woodrush High School.  The Trust allows us to work together to take part in a huge variety of events and activities aimed at promoting the delivery, uptake & enjoyment of Physics.   A few of our annual events are shown below:
     
    • Year 7 Physics Factor Busking Competition (held during British Science Week)
    • Year 9 Physics Big Quiz at Birmingham University (which we have taken bronze and silver medals in over the past couple of years)
    • Visiting speakers such as our Stargazing Live evening and more recently “Rock Guitar in 11 Dimensions”
    • Year 11 Trip to GCSE Science Live at the Symphony Hall where students listen to a number of talks from well-known Scientists.
    • Year 12 students being trained to deliver after school Physics clubs in local primary schools.
    • Year 12 and 13 students taking part in the annual British Physics Olympiad.
    • 3 “Ogden Challenge Days” held a year where our 6th form students support groups of Year 6 students from local schools to work through a number of Physics-based problems.
    • Nominated students taking part in The Ogden Trust Year 12 Physics Student of the Year Awards at Birmingham and Warwick Universities leading to bursary opportunities if they choose to study Physics further.
