GCSE+ Physics

What?

GCSE+ Physics is a weekly term time programme for students who enjoy physics and seek a deeper understanding of physical concepts. You will get the chance to take part in amazing and fun practicals and solidify your understanding with experienced, skilled, and knowledgeable physics teachers. This programme is available for students in year 9 and continues through to year 11. Students will be diving deep into fascinating physics, exploring ideas that they may have seen before in more detail, and increasing their knowledge, intrigue, and love for the subject.

The purpose of the sessions is to develop your capacity to think like a physicist and solve unfamiliar problems so that you are confident of GCSE success and well-prepared for studying physics at A-level and beyond. It’s not a GCSE revision class, so don’t expect to be doing lots of exam papers, but instead students will be diving deep into fascinating physics, exploring ideas that they may have seen before in more detail, and increasing their knowledge, intrigue, and love for the subject.

If you like physics and think you might want to take A Level Physics, then this programme is for you.

Where?

All sessions take place in the student building here, at King’s Maths School.

The school is located centrally, and just a short walk away from Waterloo, Lambeth North and Elephant and Castle stations. Local bus routes include 3, 59, 159, 344 and 360. Click here for directions.

When?

Year 9: Sessions are taking place weekly during term time on a Monday or Thursday afternoon, 16:30-18:15. This is a two-year programme and once you have joined you have a guaranteed place until February half term in year 11.

There will be a launch event at King's Maths School on Thursday 1 February. Once this has taken place, we will select the final list of students. Selected students first session will take place week beginning the 26 February.

Who?

We are taking applications from students who are currently in school Year 9. Since our mission is to widen participation in mathematical sciences degrees and careers, we’ll prioritise places for students who:

  • attend non-selective schools
  • have been eligible for Free School Meals in any of the past 6 years
  • live or have lived in local authority care, are a young carer, or are disabled
  • are traditionally underrepresented in the mathematical sciences at HE, namely Black African, Black Caribbean, and Gypsy, Roma and traveller students
  • Students living socio-economically disadvantaged areas (measured by ACORN)
  • Students with special educational needs

How to apply

Applications are now open for students in Year 9.
