The study of physics is also an adventure. You will find it challenging, sometimes frustrating, occasionally painful, and often richly rewarding.” - Hugh D. Young

Head Of Physics

Subject Overview

Physics is the study and discovery of the laws of nature which govern the quarks inside the nucleus of an atom through to the structure of the cosmos and interactions of distant galaxies. At Shire Oak, we aim to share the wonder of the Physical World through the students exploring Physics in a ‘hands on’ way as much as possible through practical work which both challenges and inspires. We are fortunate to have a very well resourced prep room, with an extensive suite of data logging and ICT equipment.
