Physics (Year 11 and 12)

Don’t be like Newton and wait for an apple to hit you on the head! Enrol with us to learn about how to improve your Nerf Gun accuracy, how to create electrical circuits to understand how your home operates, and discover the weird and wonderful properties of light.

Physics is the study of matter and energy and their interactions. Physics can look at things as small as what is inside subatomic particles, all the way to how did the Universe form.

The Physics syllabus is highly mathematical, and students need to have a high level of confidence in applying their math skills, whilst thinking creatively. We focus on completing a range of past exam papers and thinking logically and practically in order to improve students confidence and problem solving skills. No matter the level of maths you are studying, we can help you transfer your skills to Physics.
