Oxford Ogden Schools Partnership

The Ogden Trust sponsors a number of Schools Science Partnerships across the UK. These partnerships typically include schools, sixth-form colleges, FE colleges and university physics departments and provide a forum for collaborative enhancement activities

Steering committee

All activities have been planned by a steering committee, currently chaired by Claire Hamnett (Oxford Spires Academy), with support from science teachers from schools across Oxfordshire, Sian Tedaldi and Judith Hillier from Oxford University Department of Education.

We are always looking for new people to join us– you just have to be enthusiastic about teaching physics! If you would like to join the steering committee, or have any further questions about the Partnership, then please email Sian.Tedaldi@physics.ox.ac.uk.

Teachers try out different demonstrations at the Supporting Physics Teaching Workshops
