GCSE Astronomy

Duration: 2 years
Examination Board: Edexcel

With a little help from Brian Cox, Astronomy has become an increasingly popular topic. Most people are fascinated by the night sky and are interested in stories about our continuing exploration of our Solar System and Universe.

The course will enable you to understand our position in the Universe, the movements of planets and stars, the cycles in the night and daytime sky, and the way in which we use technology to observe and interact with
space. You will follow an incredible story of how scientists, from ancient civilisations to the modern day, have used their imagination and carefully recorded visual measurements to explore the Universe in which we live. Throughout the course you will undertake at least one unaided and one aided observation of the Night Sky.
