Year 12 student Michael Spencer was recently presented with an Ogden Trust award due to his fantastic progress, hard work and achievements in A-Level Physics. He is a promising student who is extremely keen to continue his studies in Physics at university after completing his A-levels.

On Monday 20th June he attended a prestigious awards evening hosted by the University of Exeter where he was presented with his Ogden Schools’ Physicist of the Year Award by Dr Alison Rivett from the Ogden Trust and Peter Vukusic, Professor of Biophotonics, at the University of Exeter.

The award is given to a small number of talented Physics students from across the south west region and is intended to inspire and encourage the study of Physics, particularly through the Ogden scholarship scheme.

Head of Physics at saltash.net community school, Sonia Cooper said:

“Mike has always been an enthusiastic student, ready to debate many aspects of physics and is quick to grasp the multiple abstract concepts and nuances of physics. As well as having an innate talent for Physics he is cheerful, keen and hard-working and I very pleased that this award will open up opportunities for Mike in his further studies in Physics”
