Subject Overview

Studying Physics is about attempting to explain the universe in terms of simple models.

At Stonyhurst you will learn a great deal about the universe and the amazing range of different ways that nature’s building blocks can be put together and interact with each other.

We also teach you to look critically at the world and how our ideas about it have developed through the ages.
At Stonyhurst, we aim to help students develop skills and capabilities that will help you in your adult and working lives. Many of our students go on to study science based courses at university.
