Physics A Level at St Mark's Catholic School

Course description

Physics is the study of the Physical Universe: how things work, why they work and what are the rules governing them. The biggest and most exciting challenge to Science today is the exploration of the smallest sub-atomic particles that exist and the vastness of the universe. The A Level course in Physics will enable students to find out more about the
incredible world in which we live. The course will encourage students to find out how physics is involved in a wide range of contexts including Medicine, Sports, Communications, Music and Building Design.

The Advanced Physics course builds on the knowledge and skills developed at GCSE. Students will be able to demonstrate safe and skilful practical techniques, record reliable and valid observations and analyse and explain the results of their investigations.
