Physics
Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.
Carl Sagan

Physics is sometimes described as the study of matter, energy, motion and force and how they interrelate.

Alternatively, it can be thought of as the study of the world around us and why it works in the way it does.  This ranges from the tiny scale, such as the development of nano-robots, to the largest possible scale, the study of our universe.

Studying Physics helps us to understand our increasingly complex world in which technology, culture, inequality and environmental calamity advance at a rapid pace. Qualifications in Physics can also open doors to a host of future careers, from engineering and research to the less obvious, such as business and finance. Amongst other attributes, studying Physics helps students develop a logical and numerate mind, problem solving skills, teamwork and flexibility.

Physics is often perceived as a ‘difficult’ subject to study, however it is important to remember that it is one that has great rewards. For those with an ambition to be at the forefront of developing technologies and theories that describe our reality, it is necessary to study Physics at school and beyond.

At Key Stage 3, students study Physics within the subject of Science.

At Key Stage 4, students study Physics for two years following the Edexcel IGCSE specification; this has both Double Award and Separate Science routes available within it. When studying Physics at Key Stage 5 students work towards firstly an AS in Physics and often subsequently a full A2, following the Edexcel specification. This course is very popular with the students and gives them an excellent basis for higher level study which can lead to degree courses such as Engineering, Architectures, Design, Aeronautics, Economics, Business or Medicine.

Our KS4 and KS5 courses are usually delivered by the same teacher for the entire course
