Girls in Physics

In 2011, physics was the fourth most popular subject for A-level among boys in English schools but for girls the subject languished in 19th place.  The institute of Physics is working on improving the number of girls taking physics at A level.




At Rooks Heath College we are committed to increasing the number of girls doing physics at A level and I hope to report on some of the activities carried out at a later date.

  1. I’m really loving the theme/design of your site. Do you ever run into any internet browser
    compatibility issues? A small number of my blog visitors
    have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but
    looks great in Opera. Do you have any ideas to help fix this issue?
