Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.

Our Physics Department is staffed by highly qualified and experienced teachers who are passionate about their subject and student development within it.

Our Teaching Philosophy

The study of Physics is a mixture of theory and practical skills which exposes the learner to concepts from the infinitesimally small to the universally huge. The Physics department have a student centred approach therefore, the main focus in the classroom is on the students and the development of their skills and abilities within the context of the subject.

What we prepare our students for

INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL MICHEL LUCIUS

In line with the curriculum used in our Primary School, our international school offer in physics is based on the CAMBRIDGE INTERNATIONAL CURRICULUM. English is the exclusive teaching language for this branch.
A first introduction to physics is facilitated in the KEY STAGE 3 Science classes (7IEC to 5IEC).

From here, all our international students follow the international GCSE curriculum (4IEC and 3IEC), an externally assessed 2-year programme covering the most important areas of physics. This qualification enables a successful progression to the externally assessed AS and A Level (2IEC and 1IEC).

Cambridge International AS and A Level Physics covers in depth the main theoretical concepts of the subject illustrated by current applications with a strong focus on advanced practical skills. Successful students in Physics have many opportunities available to them in Engineering, Medicine, Finance or Academia. The knowledge and skills that the students acquire during the course prepare them for life beyond the school at university, further study or the world of work.

LYCEE MICHEL LUCIUS

Physics is taught in German in the following sections of the ENSEIGNEMENT SECONDAIRE GENERAL (ESG):

  • Générale Ingénierie (GIG) from 4G to 1G
  • Générale Sciences Naturelles (GSN) from 4G to 1G
  • Générale Professions de Santé et Professions Sociales (GPS) from 4G to 3G

Our physics students work towards the ‘diplôme de fin d’études secondaires (GIG et GSN)’, or to be able to go to another school to learn a profession in the health or social sector (GPS).

The official program and the list of student textbooks are updated every year before the start of the academic year and are available on the website of the MINISTERE DE L’EDUCATION NATIONALE, DE L’ENFANCE ET DE LA JEUNESSE : Horaires et programmes
