Science for all students

Our philosophy is science for all students. We believe that science has something to offer every student. That's why we offer a range of intensive teaching / tutoring for all Key Stages from KS2 (Primary), KS3 (Junior Secondary), KS4 (GCSE) & KS5 (A-level) and our lessons suit students of all abilities and all aspirations.

Once you start lessons with us, you'll see that our teaching of Biology, along with Chemistry and Physics, is clear, straightforward and follows your specification. For GCSE & A-level, there is and exam at the end of the course. Our Tutors will ensure that you are ready for such exams, and this will make you realise your potential.

AQA A-level Physics Required practical activities:

  • Investigation into the variation of the frequency of stationary waves on a string with length, tension and mass per unit length of the string.
  • Investigation of interference effects to include the Young’s slit experiment and interference by a diffraction grating
  • Determination of g by a free-fall method.
  • Determination of the Young modulus by a simple method.
  • Determination of resistivity of a wire using a micrometer, ammeter and voltmeter.
  • Investigation of the emf and internal resistance of electric cells and batteries by measuring the variation of the terminal pd of the cell with current in it.
  • Investigation into simple harmonic motion using a mass-spring system and a simple pendulum.
  • Investigation of Boyle’s (constant temperature) law and Charles’s (constant pressure) law for a gas.
  • Investigation of the charge and discharge of capacitors. Analysis techniques should include log-linear plotting leading to a determination of the time constant RC
  • Investigate how the force on a wire varies with flux density, current and length of wire using a top pan balance.
  • Investigate, using a search coil and oscilloscope, the effect on magnetic flux linkage of varying the angle between a search coil and magnetic field direction.
  • Investigation of the inverse-square law for gamma radiation.

Specifications developed by teachers for teachers

The specifications we use are for the main recognised exam boards which have been developed with the involvement of thousands of UK qualified teachers. So you can be confident that our GCSE & A-level Physics is relevant and interesting to teach and to learn. Our specifications ensure that:

  • the subject content is presented clearly, in a logical teaching & learning order. We’ve also given teaching guidance and signposted opportunities for skills development throughout the specification
  • the subject content and required / core practicals in our GCSE Combined Science: Trilogy are also in our GCSE Physics, Chemistry and Biology, So you have the flexibility to co-teach or to move your students between courses.
  • We have also included all A-level Physics required / core Practicals in the A-level Physics specification.
  • all our science qualifications provide opportunities for progression. Our GCSE Physics includes progression in the subject content and consistency in the exam questions, so that our students have the best preparation for A-level.

Our practicals have been trialled by teachers

There’s no better way to learn about science than through purposeful practical activities as part of day-to-day teaching and learning

Our required /core practicals:

  • are clearly laid out in the specification, so you know exactly what’s required
  • are deliberately open, so you can teach in the way that suits you and your students
  • have already been trialled in schools.

You’ll find even more support and guidance in our practical handbook, which includes recommendations and advice from teachers in the trial.

Straightforward exams, so students can give straightforward answers

The exam boards we work with have improved their question papers. You’ll find that their exams:

  • use more straightforward language and fewer words so they’re easier to understand
  • have fewer contexts so students don’t get confused
  • have questions that increase in difficulty so students feel confident
  • have been written with our GCSE and A-level science teams, so students have consistency between content and questions

Support and resources to help you teach

We’ve worked with experienced teachers to provide you with a range of resources that will help you confidently plan, teach and prepare for exams.
