The study of astronomy links in with mathematics and physics, and has long been taught as a part of the physics curriculum.  More and more schools are now offering students the chance to take an Astronomy GCSE.  This allows students to explore the subject in greater detail.  This qualification can be an excellent way for students to further any interest they may have in space and astronomy.

The National Space Academy has worked with schools to offer a masterclass to complement studies in astronomy, using the expertise of project scientists and the National Space Centre itself to bring the curriculum to life.
