To develop the student’s understanding of the fundamental concepts of Physics and their application in everyday and technological settings. To allow students the opportunity to explore their own particular interests via challenging, yet open ended, coursework tasks. To enthuse and open the eyes of the student to the order and beauty of the physical world they live in, whilst also preparing them for potential further study in the subject.
A minimum of a grade B at GCSE in both Physics and Mathematics is expected however a grade A in both subjects is preferable.
Engineering – all disciplines of Engineering, from Civil to Aeronautical will require Physics. Finance – Physics is a sought after A Level, along with Mathematics, for a career in Finance. In general, Physics is regarded as a rigorous, academic A Level and success in it will help in a huge range of careers, from medicine, law and business to journalism, media and architecture.
