Studying A Level Physics will develop your understanding of the laws that govern the behaviours of the physical world around us, from the nuclei of atoms to the movement of stars and galaxies.

All the technology that surrounds us is based on the principles of physics, so if you are considering working in any area related to technology from music to medicine, or lasers to law – studying physics is essential.

Our course will develop your essential knowledge and understanding in physics and the applications of physics in new and changing situations. You'll develop an understanding of the link between theory and experiment, and you'll appreciate how physics is used in present day society. 

You will have a Personal Coach who supports and guides you through the course. You will meet with your coach for group meetings and for personal one to one meetings on a regular basis.
