Well done to Tom who received a Schools' Physicist of the Year award in partnership with Durham University.
Teachers nominated Tom for the award, which was open to Year 10 and Year 12 students, to recognise his outstanding efforts and achievements in physics.
Tom was one of 32 students across the North East who received the award.
Tom and his parents attended the celebration event at Durham University where undergraduate students showcased projects they had been working on during their first year studying physics at university.
Congratulations Tom, we are very proud of you!
The Ogden Trust organise the School Physicist of the Year event and aim to increase the uptake of physics for all at post-16, particularly for those from under-represented groups. The trust supports schools, projects and programmes that are committed to enhancing physics teaching and learning.
