Physics

Physics is the basis of much of our modern, technological world.

We want the girls to understand how the world works and discover the laws and principles that govern the universe from sub-atomic particles to entire galaxies.

We give the girls an appreciation of our world, its place in the Universe and the principles behind many of the appliances used in the home and at work.

Physics is a highly rewarding discipline and pupils develop a wide variety of skills and aptitudes, developing a logical and numerate mind, the ability to solve problems and the ability to work flexibly and as part of a team. 

Our Sixth Form girls participate in the British Physics Olympiad organised by the University of Oxford and go on to study Engineering, Medicine, Veterinary Science, Astronomy, Materials Science, Geology, Architecture, Acoustics and many other subjects.
