Physics at Thomas Adams School

Course description

Modern Physics started with Sir Isaac Newton in the 1600s but people have always wondered about how to explain our place in the universe and the phenomena that we observe. In its broadest sense, Physics studies the Physical, seeking to explain all of nature’s mechanisms. Since Newton, the genius of Einstein and the Quantum Physicists of the 20th Century, Physics has revolutionised our lives. For the thinking, intuitive person, A level Physics presents challenges and rewards in equal measure.
