We are passionate about our subject, and enjoy discussing the wonders of the universe, atom and everything in between, alongside the amazing technological inventions we rely on in daily life. The Physics Department is exceptionally well-resourced, facilitating our strong emphasis on hands-on practical activities and the regular use of iPad animations and other ICT resources to aid learning.
In Year 7, we focus on building a strong practical skillset and encouraging curiosity and confidence. The year culminates in an extended practical project exploring a scientific question related to the school’s solar panels or heating system. Year 8 allows much deeper exploration of several new topics with a more in-depth qualitative understanding of each topic. A key focus in Year 9 is to build pupils’ confidence and capability applying skills such as graph interpretation and algebra, in a wide range of Physics contexts.
