North East Ogden Schools Partnership

The Ogden Trust School Partnerships programme offers funding and support to groups of schools that are committed to enhancing physics teaching and learning. The programme comes in different sizes: local clusters, established collaborations and regional support. Across all of these, the Trust encourages and facilitates schools to focus on:

  • teacher professional development to help improve the teaching of physics; empowering teachers so they can inspire their students to take physics further.
  • the wider learning environment, including support for technicians and teaching assistants, and investment in physics learning spaces and resources.


  • enrichment through family and community group engagement, and networking with local employers to provide a range of broader physics experiences for pupils.

In the North East, we currently have thirteen partnerships (

The partnerships work with many different organisations, running a huge variety of programmes and events including Science Ambassador programmes for KS1 to 3; subject-specific CPD; competitions and multi-school festivals of physics.
