Physics at Teddington School
Physics is crucial to understanding the world around us and the world beyond us. From the study of the largest galaxies to the smallest subatomic particles, Physics lies at the heart of all science, engineering and much of our everyday lives. If you have an interest in the Physics topics studied at GCSE, an enquiring mind, enjoy problem solving, have mathematical ability and are up for a real challenge, then A level Physics could be for you.
