Exeter and East Devon Ogden Trust Partnership
Exeter School is the hub school for the Exeter and East Devon Ogden Trust Partnership (made up of 8 state sector schools (see below), Exeter School and Exeter University) whose aims are to increase the number of students taking physics at GCSE, A-level and at university and to support teachers of physics and encourage more physics graduates to become teachers. This included organising a regional Physics competition and regional Physics prizes open to all schools in the area, hosting a CPD workshop for teachers from local schools, a Year 7 Space Day for over 150 pupils from local schools and a trip for us and 4 other local state schools to visit the Diamond Light Source in Oxfordshire.
Partnership Schools: Colyton Grammar School; Clyst Vale Community College; Exeter College; Exeter Mathematics School; Exmouth Community College; Sidmouth College; St James School; St John's International School.
To increase the number of students taking physics at GCSE, A-level and at university and to support teachers of physics and encourage more physics graduates to become teachers. This will benefit education across the country.
The project came about through Peter Ogden's desire to promote the teaching and learning of physics.
Exeter School provides staff, resources and facilities to enable this project.
This project benefots pupils at Key Stage 4.
This is an annual event and no end date is currently scheduled.
