Welcome to The Ogden Trust

The Ogden Trust aims to increase the uptake of physics post-16 by supporting physics education and engagement for all young people (4-18), particularly those in under-represented groups. The Trust supports schools, teachers, projects and programmes that are committed to enhancing physics teaching and learning.

Through school-led partnerships the Trust helps to build and sustain supportive, collaborative teaching communities that can bring about improvement in physics education, engagement and learning environments. The Trust offers support for teachers of physics through the provision of professional development, subject knowledge, skills and resources.

We work with universities, employers and community groups to help widen access to physics enrichment and to encourage more people to understand the career pathways that can be opened up through physics.
