Physics at Blessed George Napier School

Course description

Physics attempts to explain how the entire universe `works` from its beginning to its end. By definition it must deal with the interactions between vast galaxies over billions of years, subatomic particles over trillionths of a second and everything in between. Not all of it is covered at `A` Level.This Physics course will provide a basis for further study in a variety of scientific fields from engineering, pure science and medicine.

Students should become more aware of the relationship of Physics to everyday life and the interaction of Physics with engineering and technology. The emphasis on “How Science Works” requires that students consider the risks, benefits, ethical and environment implications of science and appreciate ways in which society uses science to inform decision making. An experimental approach to Physics is encouraged with opportunity to develop relevant skills such as experimental design and technique, problem solving, analysis and communication .

Entry requirements

A minimum of five A* - C grades at GCSE is required for all students wishing to enter the Sixth Form and the student should also have gained a B at GCSE Additional Science or B at GCSE Physics and B at GCSE Mathematics.
