We actively encourage co-curricular activities such as lectures, visits and entry to competitions. In addition to this, a number of Sixth Form pupils participate in an inspirational visit to CERN in Geneva. Our pupils have also gained places on Headstart courses where they are able to experience life at university while working in labs.
Why Study Physics?
The relevance of physics to pupils’ everyday lives and its importance to modern technological society is fundamental to the department’s work. We also help pupils to understand how physics is involved in a wide variety of careers. Good physics graduates are highly numerate problem-solvers. They are particularly sought after in the rapidly developing sectors of quantitative finance, telecommunications, information technology and law.
