Course description

Studying Physics at A level will allow students to explore how the world (and indeed Universe!) around them really works. Full of challenge and opportunities, the course builds on many of the ideas taught at GCSE but also introduces a range of new and exciting concepts, such as particle physics and quantum phenomena.

Practical work features heavily in lessons and by studying this course, students will also develop their investigative and problem solving skills - assets actively sought by universities and future employers. Physics really could be your passport to the future!
