Physics plays a big part in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. You will learn the basic theoretical principles underlying the subject, where there is a strong emphasis on using these principles to solve problems and answer questions that strike at the fundamental heart of science. The ability to match empirical experiences with mathematical solutions will strengthen your conceptual knowledge and give a deeper understanding of the world around us.

You will learn and develop important investigative skills as you tackle new practical tasks and challenges. Skilful use of equipment will be coupled with powerful analytical and evaluative techniques.

Our general entry requirements are that you will need a minimum of five Grade 6s in your GCSEs to study A-Levels.

You will need at least a grade 6 in GCSE Physics. However, due to the fact that much of the Physics content overlaps with A-Level mathematics, we generally require A Level Physics students to also take A level maths, which requires a grade 7 in GCSE maths,
