Physics A Level at Haggerston School

Course description

Physics involves the study of the world around us in order to understand how nature works. We describe how the world works by formulating laws and theories. We test our ideas by making predictions and completing experiments. Theories and laws can describe how the smallest known parts of matter work, through to the birth and evolution of the universe.
