I would like to personally thank the users of http://sptr.net/  and https://scotland.guzled.com/ for their massive support of the Physics Teaching Community in Scotland. Without their help, the information contained within this website would not be possible. 

A special thank you must be given to Mark McShane and the Physics department of Kinross High School as without their training and continuous assistance with Google products, this website would not have been possible. 

A special thank you must also be given to Nick Forwood for support and feedback on the National 5 Course.

A special thank you must also be given to Chris Davie of  Glenrothes High School for his production of the past paper by topic documents, these are a vital resource for students and we very much appreciate him sharing his work.

A special thank you must also be given to a currently unknown member of the 'Scirius' Environmental Science group for their Student workpacks. The ones featured on this site are a edited version of these, so without their work I would not have been able to produce them. If anyone does know their original creators, please get in touch!

In addition, a special thank you must be given to Ian Mackley of the Aberdeen & District Beekeepers Association for his support and feedback on the NPA Beekeeping course. I also would like to thank the members of the N5 Beekeeping and Scottish Beekeepers Facebook Groups, their assistance was invaluable!
