Why Study Cambridge IGCSE Physics

How does gravity work? In our Cambridge IGCSE Physics homeschooling course your child will learn the answer to this and many other questions. They will explore the basic building blocks of the universe – energy and matter. They’ll be introduced to a range of interesting phenomena and discover surprising explanations for everyday things we see and take for granted. Our carefully designed home-based experiments will help to reinforce your child’s understanding of theoretical ideas as they are guided through the key areas of Physics.

I really love the way the Wolsey Hall Oxford homeschooling system works. It gives you spare time to focus on the things that are important to you. I really like that whenever we struggled with anything there was a lot of help available and the Tutors are very helpful.
