Practical work forms an essential part of almost all topics and aims to build skills and develop understanding. Practicals take a variety of forms including: using ICT models, constructing investigations (such as determining the acceleration of a freely falling object) and using specialist equipment, for example oscilloscopes, lasers, air tracks and radioactive sources.
At least 5 A*-C grades at GCSE including English and Maths with at least a grade B in Maths, and a grade A or A* in GCSE Additional Science or Physics
