Year 10 Physics

Core Program

This course covers the key subject area of Physics and chemistry.

Our term courses are scheduled in line with public school term dates. There are 4 terms per year and usually 10 lessons per term, with one lesson each week. You can commence our courses at any time, however a new term starts in late January, April, July and October.

Our Physics/Chemistry course enable students to:

  • Develop knowledge of Physics concepts and the scientific method through theoretical and practical learning and experimentation.

Program schedules are designed to allow maximum flexibility for students.
