Course Content

A Level Physics is the study of everything and how it works. It is the study of the laws and conditions that explain how the Universe works. Many would argue that it is the most fundamental of all of the sciences. On a tiny scale, Physics seeks to identify the particles which exist inside the nucleus of an atom and beyond, while on a truly enormous scale it attempts to explain the behaviour of distant galaxies at the far edge of the universe. The A Level Physics course is designed for those with enquiring minds who enjoy both practical and theoretical work. It is challenging and suits students with a good grounding in maths.


A Level Physics offers a wide range of progression routes to both employment and Higher Education encompassing architecture and engineering to medical physicist and radiographer.
