Course aims

The course aims to provide a stimulating and worthwhile programme of study which will broaden students’ understanding of the physical world around them. It develops logical thought processes and problem solving skills. The course is based on applications of Physics in the everyday world and beyond. Practical work is an integral part of the course. As a hub school for The Ogden Trust, our students are provided with an extensive enrichment programme including Stargazing sessions, Space Centre Masterclasses, lectures and engineering talks. The Ogden Trust also provides opportunities for students who are planning to study Physics at university to apply for residential courses at Russell Group universities and undergraduate scholarships to the value of £6000.

Entry requriements

It is expected that students will have a knowledge and understanding of Physics at Grade 6 in a GCSE examination in Science (Double Award) or Grade 6 in Physics single award. In addition, students are required to have a minimum Grade 6 in GCSE Maths.
If you are not choosing A Level Mathematics, you are required to take Mathematical Studies  to complement this subject.
