Physics

Happy is she or he who knows the causes of things.
Virgil

In Physics, students at The Dixie examine the causes of many of the phenomena that we observe in the world. In our well-equipped laboratories, or in our dark room, and through an emphasis on practical work, students are able to examine the world around us. 

Students enjoy a large range of visits, including to The Science Museum in London and The Space centre in Leicester and in the past we have visited the European Space Agency where a former student is a member of staff and we have also visited CERN in Switzerland and parts of the American Space programme.
