Physics A level at Sir Bernard Lovell School

Course description

The approach is to look at physics from applications in everyday life and develop an understanding of the principles involved. We look at athletics, making music and CDs, technology used in space exploration, physics used in archaeology and in replacement surgery, and the use of physics in productions of sweets. The A2 course ranges from the heart of the nucleus to the entire universe, from the Big Bang to the end of time. It also looks at the physics involved in communications.

Future opportunities

Physics is one of the most highly respected of the A-levels. As a result it can be used as a stepping stone into a wide range of careers outside of the scientific field from accountancy or law to air line piloting! Students intending to continue higher education study in science or engineering are advised to opt for A Level Physics.
