Physics is the fundamental science that lies at the heart of modern engineering, technology and medicine.
In A level Physics students will study the general rules which underlie all of Science. There are surprisingly few rules but together they govern the behaviour of everything that is physical. The aim is to train our students to recognise, interpret and apply these principles clearly and creatively in a variety of different contexts. Physics is a practical subject: the only way to really understand how objects behave is to experiment and observe. Students will have the chance to gain confidence in handling technical equipment.
