Physics helps us explain phenomena in the world around us. It provides the scientific basis for the understanding of many aspects of everyday processes and modern technologies.

The Year 12 and 13 courses give students an understanding of physical principles in mechanics, waves, atomic physics and electricity as well as developing an understanding of scientific investigation.

Physics helps students to think clearly and work things out for themselves when they are confronted with unfamiliar situations.

The year 13 Physics course prepares students for university study in Physics as well as areas such as engineering, technology, architecture and the health sciences.
