Physics - A Level


There has never been a better time to study Physics. We are at the beginning of our understanding of dark matter and dark energy. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has already discovered the Higgs Boson, and we expect more amazing discoveries from the LHC in the next few years. As a result, models in Physics may be rewritten, which will change our understanding of nature and the origins of the universe. An A-Level in Physics will open up a broad range of career possibilities, whether in industry, research or even pushing the boundaries of our understanding of nature. If you are a confident mathematician, enjoy practical work, have an enquiring mind and want to know more about how the world works, then A-Level Physics is for you.


Grade 6 in GSCE combined or separate sciences, we also recommend a Grade 6 in GSCE Maths


An A-Level in Physics will open doors to many science and non- science careers. Employers recognise the transferable skills learnt in A-Level Physics, and many universities view A-Level Physics as a solid foundation for many science related degrees.
