Key Stage 5 Physics
Physics is the most fundamental of all the physical sciences. Its laws are engrained in our understanding of the world and have proved vital in advancing our technologies.
Think of a famous scientist, and you bet it will be a Physicist. Ask yourself – why?
Physics is much more than simply learning and understanding. It’s about observing the nature, and, in the best of minds, using imagination and insight to formulate theories. The underlying simplicity of Physics is, simply, beautiful.
Because Physics is an exact science, it relies on mathematics rather heavily. At KS5, studying Maths is highly recommended, although it is not an essential requirement for the course.
Studying Physics at A level provides students with a solid foundation of the major areas in Physics, and prepares them for the study of the subject at University level. The course is also designed to develop students’ analytical and problem-solving skills, logical thinking and independent study skills.
