Aims & Philosophy of the Physics Department
The Physics Department at Queen Margaret’s aims to make Physics an accessible and interesting subject for all girls and to ensure each is able to make positive progress. This is done by providing challenging and interesting courses that encourage both girls and staff to think imaginatively about Physics. Girls are empowered to be actively involved in all stages in their learning, and are provided with support and encouragement to help them develop the tools for learning through Physics. We work diligently to support the girls’ development of initiative and independence in their work while also encouraging cooperation and teamwork. Lastly, we provide opportunities for girls to develop the skills necessary to apply their knowledge and understanding of Physics to life outside the classroom.
