Physics Department scoops prestigious award
Congratulations to the Physics Department who recently attended the Institute of Physics Awards Ceremony to collect an award recognising the department’s achievements in A-Level Physics!
We are proud to have a fantastic team of teachers and technicians at The Judd School fully committed to delivering thought provoking and stretching lessons; introducing concepts way beyond the expectations of the curriculum. Led by Simon Hewitt (pictured receiving the award) who has himself been working with the IOP for 15 years, the department, encourages bold, exciting demonstrations and experiments, often building new equipment for enriching the subject. Students are supported to perform exceptionally well, both in their exams, but also in a wide variety of extra-curricular activities which students run for other students, inviting experts and ex-students in to the school to give inspirational lectures
Such is the popularity of the subject at A Level, that numbers are outstanding, with well over 200 physicists in the Sixth Form, including more than 50 girls.
