Masterclasses (Year 12 and 13)
Our Physics Masterclasses are events specifically set up to broaden students' knowledge and experience.
Our masterclasses aim to enthuse students to continue studying physics and to develop their A-level Physics. The "How Science Works" section of the Physics specification is emphasised during these events i.e. how Physics the research projects fit into the wider global scientific community. We also host one of the STFC National Particle Physics Masterclasses.
The days are delivered by Researchers and postgraduate students.
How to attend a masterclass
A maximum of 16 students can attend each masterclass so early application - by individual students - is important. All you have to do is complete our booking form stating the master class you are interested in attending.
Phil Furneaux will get back to you and if there are places available he will send you a letter which includes a consent form for your parent or guardian to complete. Your school and teacher need do nothing more.
If you live in Cumbria there are travel allowances available. We have a grant from the Ogden Trust to pay for your train fares to these events. We shall send you the tickets once your place is confirmed and we have your completed consent form.
We offer a range of masterclasses in different areas of the A-level syllabus:
