Curriculum Intent 

Our Physics curriculum is crafted to instil a profound understanding of the fundamental principles governing the natural world. Rooted in the UK National Curriculum, our intent is to spark curiosity and inspire a lifelong fascination with the laws that govern matter, energy, and the universe.

The curriculum encompasses key areas:

  • Forces, motion, and energy
  • Waves, sound, and light
  • Electricity and magnetism
  • Particle model of matter and atomic structure
  • Space physics and astrophysics

Through a dynamic blend of theoretical knowledge and hands-on experimentation, our goal is to equip students with critical thinking skills, problem-solving abilities, and a deep appreciation for the role of physics in addressing real-world challenges. By fostering scientific enquiry and ethical considerations, we aim to prepare students for academic success and nurture a generation of innovative thinkers in the scientific community.
