Staff and students from the A Level Physics department, visited CERN in Geneva, Switzerland which is a world known physics research organisation that carries out ground breaking research into Particle Physics.


Students from KGV’s Physics A Level course took the opportunity to expand their knowledge of particle physics during a trip to Geneva, Switzerland. As well as visiting the UN Palace of Nations Building and the History of Science Museum the highlight of the trip was a visit to the CERN research facility. This world-renowned location focuses on research into the fundamental elements of matter and the forces acting between them to provide insight in to the laws of nature

Theory into practise

Staff at KGV were delighted to be able to give this opportunity to their students so they could see cutting edge research first-hand and see the relevance of the theory they have been learning in their Physics A Level classroom.

To wind down after a hectic few days the students took advantage of their beautiful surroundings and enjoyed a ‘Swiss Fondue Experience’ Cruise on Lake Geneva.
