The Physics department at West Kirby Grammar School consists of four teachers, who are all Physics specialists. At Key Stage 3, students study Physics for one lesson a week and study a variety of topics including energy, forces and motion, space, electricity and waves as well as developing their practical and analytical skills. Students develop their interest and enthusiasm in the physics of all that is around them. All students study for separate GCSE Physics at Key Stage 4. The number of students opting to study A-level Physics has grown over the last seven years, attracting two teaching groups each year.

The department is proud of its public examination results; with 62% achieving 9-7 and 76%% achieving 9-6 at GCSE. At A-level, we have achieved 50% A*-B and 14% A* grades.

The Science Department has 12 fully-equipped laboratories, with state-of-the-art and fully interactive technology. We offer a large number of visits to enrich our curriculum, including a Key Stage 4 and 5 trip to NASA in Texas, a Key Stage 5 visit to CERN in Geneva and masterclasses at the University of Liverpool and Leicester Space Centre.

Well done to Years 7 & 8 who took part in an U13 football competition organised by Tranmere Rovers at Weatherhead High School last week. Both teams showed real promise and team work on a freezing cold evening and narrowly missed out on qualifying for the finals. #WKGSY7 #WKGSY8 https://t.co/nvTYWPOrJC

It’s been #AntiBullyingWeek in school this week. Everyone has worked in their form on understanding that #ChangeStartsWithUs and reviewing the school Anti-bullying Policy. This was sent to parents too alongside the weekly newsletter yesterday. #ChooseToBeYou @WestKirbyGS
