Practical work is at the heart of the subject
Physics remains a highly regarded GCSE and A Level subject and its study brings with it many transferable skills, which evidence an organised, dextrous and questioning intellect. Through studying Physics, a wide range of degree courses opens up, for instance: Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Material Sciences, Geology, Architecture, Astronomy and Astrophysics, Medicine, Mathematics and Particle Physics, to name just a few. All these courses open doors into careers in industries such as aerospace, defence, education, energy, engineering, instrumentation, manufacturing, science, and telecommunications.
The course at The Oratory is built around two main aims; first, to encourage a curiosity for the subject in its own right and, secondly, to present the relevance of Physics to everyday life.
