GCSE Astronomy

Most people are fascinated by the night sky and are interested in stories about our continuing exploration of our Solar System and Universe.

This course has been developed to build on that interest and to give an introduction to the subject of astronomy.

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.

Students will follow an incredible story of how scientists, from ancient civilisations to the modern day, have used their imagination and carefully recorded visual measurement to explore the Universe in which we live. This course will also support your other sciences, deepening your knowledge and understanding of the universe.

Future prospects

  • Product Assurance Engineer
  • Aeronautical Engineer
  • Aerospace propulsion
