Physics at Bishop Luffa School

Course description

If you have enjoyed the Physics modules in your GCSE course; if you are interested in understanding the workings of the Universe and the fundamental particles of matter; if you want to know more about the laws which technologists and engineers use in their work; if you are puzzled by the strange ideas of relativity and cosmology - then you should consider studying Physics.

In recent years students have gone on tostudy all branches of Physics (including astrophysics, nuclear physics and environmental physics) and all kinds of engineering (including civil, mechanical, automotive, aeronautical, materials,electrical, electronic and chemical).

For others Physics has been a part of their Sixth Form course leading to further studyin Chemistry, Biology, Medicine, Veterinary Science, Maths, Music, Oceanography, Psychology, Philosophy and a host of other careers not directly related to Physics.
