PHYSICS

 

PHYSICS IS MORE THAN A SUBJECT – IT TRAINS YOUR BRAIN TO THINK BEYOND BOUNDARIES.

 

WHY CHOOSE PHYSICS?

Do you find yourself asking “What if?” or “Why?” or “What happens when?” Do you want to investigate the biggest of the big (what is beyond the edge of the Universe?), the smallest of the small (what is inside a quark?), and everything in between?

If you ask these sorts of questions then A-level physics might be the answer.

 

WHAT YOU STUDY

There are the obvious fundamental physics principles to explore. A successful understanding of mechanics, electricity, waves etc will open up many avenues for future careers. A thorough understanding of how to apply simple mathematics to explain complex systems such as the Earth’s climate, weather and biological systems ensures that we can bring order and predictability to seemingly chaotic or random events. Through practical work, you will develop your analytical and investigative skills so that your abilities to predict analyse and explain (3 universally important skills) are first class. But also there is the weird and bamboozling world of life on a sub atomic level- quantum mechanics to study, or the beauty and majestic intrigue of the nature of stars and beyond.

 

HOW YOU STUDY

Discussion, problem solving, computer aided learning, investigation, mathematical modelling, and individual and collaborative practical work.
