“The department always try and help you in any way possible; organising lunch time revision sessions and generally always being available to ask questions”   - TGGS Student

Our Physics course takes a content-led approach to the subject. This is a flexible approach where the specification is divided into topics, each covering different key concepts of Physics.

The diverse topics covered gives scope for a wide range of teaching and learning activities including practical work, class discussion and presentation, software modelling, student led demonstrations and peer teaching. Topics and lessons will be divided between two teachers.

We aim to encourage students to become responsible for their own learning, confident in discussing ideas, innovative and engaged. Lunchtime support sessions and A Level Physics workshops will also be organised and provided. Students are expected to purchase their own textbook. 

For A Level only, the Practical Endorsement will also support the development of practical skills. 

Current Teaching Staff:    
Mr. R Baker – Head of Department
Mr. J Castillo
Examination board and syllabus:  
OCR Physics A (H156,H556)
