Teachers of Physics Award

The Teachers of Physics awards celebrate the success of secondary school physics teachers who have raised the profile of physics and science in schools.

Read about our 2020 winners.

We know that teachers contribute an immense amount to society and we wish to accord them the recognition they deserve.

With these awards, we honour teachers alongside distinguished research scientists and industrialists.

In this way we recognise that without dedicated teachers there would be no physics research community or technological base in society.
