22nd June 2021 — Last month, colleagues and pupils at University College School in Hampstead were delighted to learn that Dr Peter Edmunds, who has been Head of Physics at UCS since 2020, has released a GCSE Science textbook.

The book is designed to support pupils with the mathematical aspects of the GCSE Science courses and has already received 5 star reviews online.

Dr Edmunds was delighted that it has been so well received and commented: “I’ve always enjoyed writing new teaching resources for my classes, and two years ago started a website (sciencedoctor.school.blog) to share these more widely within the teaching community.

"At times, teachers have a hectic schedule and so it’s nice to make other teachers' lives a little easier. I’ve been amazed that my resources have been downloaded 300,000 times now!"

Collins, the publishers, contacted Dr Edmunds in 2020 and the book, which is designed to be used by pupils of all abilities, was released in mid-May.

Dr Edmunds added: "I tested some of the resources in my classes and they really enjoyed the challenge of the higher level material."

Mark English, Vice Master and Academic Director at UCS added: "We were delighted to support Peter with this. Sharing resources between teachers across schools is essential in developing pedagogy and we are pleased Dr Edmunds’ book has been so well received."
