A-Level physics builds on the work students do at GCSE, extending and deepening their knowledge of physics. Taught by expert teachers, students will develop a broad understanding of a range of physics topic including electricity, waves, and radiation

Practical work is at the heart of all good science teaching, and the required practical activities will give students the opportunity to embed their skills and knowledge. This course prepares students for further university study and is a gateway to a degree in any scientific or mathematical field.


Measurements and Errors, Particles and Radiation, Waves, Mechanics and Materials, Electricity, Further Mechanics and Thermal Physics, Fields and their Consequences, Nuclear Physics

Optional Modules:

Astrophysics, Medical Physics, Engineering Physics, Turning Points, Electronics

How will it be delivered?

3 Exams at the end of the course.

Paper 1 and 2 are 1 hour 30 minutes covering core content

Paper 3 is 2 hours covering practical skills and the optional module.

There is a separate practical skills endorsement that is internally assessed.

Students sit AS exams at the end of year 12, to assess their progress towards the A-Level
