A Level

The IGCSE is an excellent grounding for the linear Pearson Edexcel Advanced Physics examinations taken at A Level. The course gives us the flexibility to choose the better approach for the cohort from either a contextual or conceptual delivery. The Salters Horner contextual approach allows for pupils’ life experiences and general knowledge to help reinforce learning as physics is considered in such contexts as sport, music and food whereas the conceptual approach follows a more traditional delivery with areas such as fields, mechanics and quantum physics. Whilst maintaining the strong links between mathematics and natural philosophy, pupils are actively encouraged to consider their own humanity and the impact of technology on our society.
