Welcome to The Ogden Trust

We're a charitable trust that exists to promote the teaching and learning of physics. We do this by providing individual scholarships to talented sixth formers and undergraduates and by enabling innovative physics teaching to take place in schools, often forging links to universities. We also address the shortage of physics teachers in the UK by funding programmes that encourage young graduates and career changers to go into teaching. If you are interested in our work, you are welcome to browse and we would be delighted if anything you read inspires you in some way, either as an individual or as a physics teacher looking for new ideas.
Grant enquiries must be within the framework of our existing programmes.
