A Level Physics
AQA Physics A Level is a course which encompasses the most relevant and interesting parts of Physics in an interesting matter. We will study topics such as particle physics, quantum physics, forces, electricity, thermal physics, nuclear physics, mechanics, and an optional unit of Astrophysics, which ties in closely with the current Astronomy GCSE course. There is a practical element, where students are required to complete several assessed practical tasks to assess their dexterity within a laboratory environment. There is also an amazing opportunity for students to go on a trip to visit the large hadron collider at CERN Geneva, not to be missed!
