A thrilling day out for Gad’s GCSE Physicists

Our Year 11s spent a day on some of the UK’s biggest roller coasters broadening their knowledge of forces and energy.

In case, you’re wondering, the above picture is not of one of the UK’s biggest rollercoasters!!!  Our thrill-seekers were too speedy to capture on film on Saw, Stealth and The Swarm so here they are on something a little tamer!

The 15-16-year-olds found out first-hand the effects of forces and acceleration on rollercoasters and rides during their visit to Thorpe Park Resort.

The cohort seemed happy to swap the classroom for a theme park and returned to school with a better understanding of the topic – and is looking forward to their next practical day out!
