Physics

Exploding stars, fission reactors, superconductors and particle accelerators.

With a hands-on experimental focus, we take pupils on an adventure of discovery to understand the universe at its most fundamental levels, help them to develop highly valuable problem-solving skills at every stage of learning, and instil in them a healthy respect for the scientific method.

Always aiming to build an in-depth understanding from basic principles, our excellent teachers also regularly link the fascinating theories to their real-world applications. Our teachers cater for all abilities using many varied methods to allow pupils to access content in different ways and provide the support they need to progress skills.

Our pupils excel, we consistently show that we add value to pupils’ attainment in public exams. Alongside this pupils’ achievements in external competitions, for example the Physics Olympiad and Ogden Physics Challenge, have been outstanding.

Why do universities and employers love Physics pupils? The higher level skills developed translate to many applications:

I. Problem solving skills
II. Applying Maths to real life situations
III. Communicating logic behind conclusions
IV. Data analysis skills

Classroom-based learning is complemented with many enrichment events and trips throughout the year. With opportunities ranging from lunch-time interactive webinar lectures with UK universities, a trip to the Medical Physics Department at the local hospital, to the annual trip to Geneva visiting the Large Hadron Collider at CERN.
