About the Curriculum

Pupils at Lancing opting for Physics AS and A Level follow the Advancing Physics specification administered by OCR and written in collaboration with the Institute of Physics. Last year 40 pupils started the AS course, of whom about 70% will be continuing to A2. The course is fully supported by a comprehensive electronic text book and learning resources available via the web and produced specifically for the OCR(B) specification.


The Department organises trips and visits to lectures and scientific establishments on a regular basis. Last year visits were organised to CERN, the Diamond Light Source research facility at Harwell, the Euro Space Centre in Belgium, as well as regular IoP lectures at the University of Sussex.
