Physics

What could be more amazing than finding out how the entire universe works?

We take a practical approach to Physics that allows all ability levels to succeed and enjoy the thrills of Natural Philosophy.  We show how simple physical principles are used and demonstrate how they are applied in everyday situations.    The team of specialist teachers use a vast array of equipment, gadgets, computer programmes and practical tasks and there are regular visits ranging from the local Observatory to Rutherford Appleton laboratories to Thorpe Park.

We are proud of the pupils that go on to study Physics, Engineering and Materials Science at university.

We also have a very successful record in Oxbridge applications and Physics, Engineering and Materials Science are popular options with Canford pupils at University.   The achievements of some of our pupils in the British Physics Olympiad have been outstanding.
