First and Second Year pupils are taught Physics as part of the wider Science Curriculum. Girls will acquire a broad range of scientific skills through experimental work and cover fundamental topics such as Forces, Magnetism and Light.
At St George’s, all pupils study Biology, Chemistry and Physics at GCSE either in preparation for a Combined Science examination, gaining two GCSEs across the three disciplines, or with a view to taking GCSE examinations in the three disciplines separately.
In the Third Year, girls start the GCSE course and will cover topics as diverse as Space Physics, Waves and Electricity.
A Level Physics is a popular subject where key theories from GCSE are built on and their complexities explored. It is a broad curriculum covering nine main areas that include Particles and Radiation, Mechanics and Materials, Nuclear Physics and Astrophysics. As part of the course all girls will take part in the Practical Endorsement where key practical skills will be developed and assessed.
