Physics at Lucton School

Course description

Physics is crucial to understanding the world around us, the world inside us, and the world beyond us. It is the most basic and fundamental science. Physics challenges our imaginations with concepts like relativity and string theory; it encompasses the study of the universe from the largest galaxies to the smallest subatomic particles, and it leads to discoveries that lead to technologies which change our lives. Moreover, it’s the basis of many other sciences, including chemistry, oceanography, seismology, and astronomy (and can be applied to biology or medical science). Physicists are problem solvers. Their analytical skills make physicists versatile and adaptable so they work in many diverse fields. At Lucton we study AQA Physics A covering particle physics, electricity, waves and mechanics in Year 12 and further mechanics, fields , nuclear physics and thermal physics in Year 13, where there is also an optional topic.

Entry requirements

Ideally, students will have gained grade A in GCSE physics or combined science; however, each applicant is considered on his or her merits. An interest in the subject and a willingness to work hard are essential. A good grade in maths is also useful.
