By performing experiments and collecting data, physicists deduce the fundamental laws that explain everything we see, from the expansion of the universe to the tiniest particles known in existence.
At A level, you gain an in-depth knowledge of a broad range of topics, as well as develop your logical thinking, problem-solving, and investigative skills.
The skills developed open doors to a world of opportunities, including a wide range of degrees such as physics, engineering, chemistry, biology and maths, as well as subjects like design, computing, medicine, economics and law.

Physicists explore the fundamental nature of almost everything we know of. They probe the furthest reaches of the earth to study the smallest pieces of matter. Join them to enter a world deep beneath the surface of normal human experience.
Lessons are really engaging as the teachers are all complete Physics enthusiasts. They constantly find interesting ways to support and extend our learning such as lunchtime talks, workshops and practical experiments.Claudia, Year 12 student
