Apply for a funded Physics masterclass for your school - thanks to the Ogden Trust

Highgate School Physics MasterclassWe have a number of school places left on our Ogden Trust funded physics masterclasses. 

These one day Physics masterclasses for 14 - 19 year olds are almost entirely funded for schools in England with at least 13% of students registered for free school meals. 

Our full day Physics masterclasses are led by our expert team of Lead Educators. A Lead Educator will visit your school and spend the day with students; using hands-on activities and experiments to help students explore forces, gravity, the electromagnetic spectrum, pressure, astronomy and more. Mars, comets, human spaceflight, and rockets can all be used to engage students with the curriculum and to inspire them with the role physics and physicists have played in our understanding of space. Each masterclass is different, and built to ensure your students get the most out of the session,
