Leeds West Academy


Stimulating Physics Network

This week Leeds West Academy welcomed Mr. Rolley from The Institute of Physics for a unique workshop of physics experiments.

The session included a broad presentation of experiments for the benefit of Year 10 and Year 11 girls, revealing the diverse range of study which Physics offers at A-Level and beyond.

After the session a student said: "I wasn't looking forward to an extra physics lesson as I generally don't enjoy science as much as PE or Dance, but I really enjoyed the projects today.”

Ms Foy, Director of Learning for Science, added: " We thank Mr Rolley from The Institute of Physics for such an engaging and inspiring workshop of physics activities, which has had many of our students changing their opinions on the subject, particularly with a view to A-Level."
