The course is rich in history, and you will learn unusual techniques that are not common in other subjects. You’ll realise after the course that not everything is plain and simple in the world in which we live!
The GCSE will take less than one year to complete with an exam worth 75% and coursework worth 25% of your final grade and it is supported with a textbook and an online facility. The course will take place at Stroud High School in S8 on Wednesdays from 3:30pm to 4:30pm. It is open to all Key stage 4 and 5 students.
If you are interested then talk with your parents/guardian, then read the students’ guide on the next pages. Remember the course will start in September 2010, it will require coursework completion both within school time and out of school time, for instance one of the pieces of coursework is to make observations of the Moon.
Many students have enjoyed the experience before, were glad they took part and all found it a challenge worth completing.
So, if you are interested please ask you parent/guardian to contact me via this email address email@example.com making sure to address it to ‘Mr Green, Physics teacher’ stating who you are and what school you come from, or send a letter to the school using the postal address above.
Look forward to hearing from you.
