As you approach your IGCSE years at King Richard III College it is a requirement of the curriculum that you study at least one of the Sciences. If your interests lie in the mathematical, analytical side of life then Physics would be the subject for you to continue with. If aeronautics is your thing, wanting to know the ins and outs of aircraft velocity or how a rocket takes off, then this would definitely be your field. Physics is a very hands-on subject and one that we demonstrate through a variety of methods here at King Richard III College.
If you’ve always wanted to know what it felt like to be in the shoes of Isaac Newton, then we urge you to take the challenge, take Physics!
At Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5 we follow the British curriculum and students will take the Cambridge examinations.
At King Richard III College we offer a high standard of teaching in this subject with a dedicated and very experienced teacher who will ensure that by the end of your IGCSE course you will have the knowledge required to gain a very good grade and hopefully will have spurred your interest to continue the subject through to A level. We follow the Cambridge IGCSE syllabus 0625.
In the IGCSE course students will cover a vast array of areas, such as mechanics, sub-atomic particles and electromagnetic radiation. This will enable students to appreciate the applications of modern physics in our everyday lives.
At King Richard III College, we follow the Cambridge A Level Physics course 9702. Physics is a very intense science which encompasses a lot of mathematics. Gaining this qualification can lead to some very interesting and well paid jobs around the world. Studying Physics at A Level could lead to a diverse university course and then on to a very lucrative career. It is an engaging subject that we can bring to life, here at King Richard III College.
Physics at A Level involves a much deeper understanding of the processes present in our universe. Topics range from learning about quantum weirdness to applications of physics in medicine. At the end of this course students will have a strong idea about which specialism they wish to study at university. And at a time where particles colliders and space exploration are commonplace, there has never been a better time to study physics!
