We run sector-leading innovations like the Monmouth Science Initiative, where students get the opportunity to carry out experiments and investigations beyond the A level Physics curriculum. Invited speakers from leading universities inspire and educate about subjects as diverse as Operational Research and Supernovae.
Boys can find out about the Universe by joining the Monmouth Astronomical Research Society which meets regularly in the Physics department. Observing sessions with telescopes are run and also experts from universities and other astronomical institutions give talks on all things Space.
Boys from all years are encouraged to join initiatives like the High Altitude Balloon Club which meets every week in the department. Run from the Michaelmas term onwards, it culminates in balloon launches of scientific instruments to the high atmosphere in March, all built and designed by boys in Years 7 – 13.
