Physics

The Physics AS and A2 courses are taught through interesting real world contexts to bring the subject alive. Physics students will gain the skills they need to succeed in a wide variety of careers. Physics based courses at university related to engineering, medicine or pure Physics have a very high employment rate at the end of the courses. We look in more depth at topics from GCSE and introduce the new topics of Astrophysics, Particle Physics and Quantum Physics.  The subject is introduced and taught in a very practical way and students can expect considerable hands on practical experience and part of the end assessment will involve a practical activity and write up. Learning is supported by e-learning through the VLE and in-house resources as well as excellent teaching by subject experts.
