    A Level Physics

Introduction

The A Level OCR physics `A` specification courses offered provide a very good basis for students to progress into further education to study physics or engineering, or to enter employment where a knowledge of physics would be useful. The course includes the study of electricity, magnetism, forces, fields, motion and the frontiers of physics and other topics. Students are given the opportunity to develop their interest and enthusiasm as they progress through the course, where the emphasis is on understanding the concepts taught. Lesson time is divided between practical and theory work. To reinforce what is learnt in class it is expected that students will spend a considerable amount of time in independent study and regular assignments will be set. 

Entry Requirements

GCSE grades 6/6 in Combined Science or grades 6/6/5 if the Triple Science route was followed at GCSE. A 6 grade in the chosen science subject and a 6 in GCSE Mathematics is required.

Curriculum Overview & Exam Information

We have included curriculum overviews as well as exam information to support students and parents/carers to have a better and broader understanding of how learning develops in each year group. The curriculum overview documents below indicate: the knowledge, skills and understanding that students will gain, how this unit builds on prior learning, and what mastery will look like for each year group. This year, we have added a catch up summary at the beginning to outline how we will catch up on lost learning during school closure. The red writing also indicates where the curriculum has been changed this academic year to support student catch up.
