The Coopers' Company and Coborn School


Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand. - Albert Einstein

If you have an enquiring mind, are interested in the nature of universe, are of good mathematical ability and enjoy problem solving then A Level physics is for you. Students further their knowledge and understanding through the study of theory in conjunction with practical work. In addition they learn how the study of physics relates to the real world.

The Science Department at Coopers’ Company and Coborn School offers highly qualified, specialist teachers, experienced technicians and a strong emphasis on practical work and independent learning. Our teachers are supportive and approachable; they enjoy their work and are open to further learning and development. The department also has strong links with professional bodies such as Imperial College, The Society for Biology, The Royal Society , The Royal Horticultural Society, Essex Wildlife Trust, The Institute of Physics and Pearsons Edexcel.
