Physics is a radical, fast moving and innovative subject which covers a HUGE range of topics in science. The girls follow a syllabus that is broadly in line with the physics content of the National Curriculum, but is greater in both breadth and depth. We encourage pupils to link the subject content to their everyday experiences. There is a strong element of practical work, as well as a thorough grounding in the theory behind the experiments. We also emphasise the development of the essential scientific thinking skills that underpin the subject matter.
EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES
Students are visited by outside speakers and experts in the field of physics to stretch the girls’ learning and understanding of the subject outside of the academic world.
