GCSE Physics is part of our science suite.he content is presented in an order that tells a coherent and logical story through physics, although teachers are free to teach the content in the order that best suits their students.  The required practicals are linked to areas of the content where it would be most appropriate .to teach them to embed skills and knowledge. The subject intendes to explores baisc of:

1. Energy
2. Electricity
3. Particle model of matter
4. Atomic structure
5. Forces
6. Waves
7. Magnetism and electromagnetism
8. Space physic
