Ethos of the Department

The Physics Department aims to stimulate intellectual curiosity, interest and enjoyment of Physics and its application to the world around us, within a supportive and caring environment, where each girl is encouraged to take responsibility for her own progress and seek additional help and support where necessary. Each girl is treated as an individual and expected to engage in the learning process and actively achieve her potential.
