    A good place to start is to call your nearest University as occasionally they have a space or two available for students with interest to provide some handy-work.

    It suggests that Physics placements are hard to come by until you're at a higher level of education but offers some ideas.

    I don't think theres any point in trying to get "physics" work experience, nor do I think any really exists at your age. You havent done enough physics to possibly get any work experience. I'd suggest looking for regular work experience and/or a physics summer school or course.

    Ask your nearest university. If no luck, ask the Physics research departments.

    I asked Manchester and got no reply, so I emailed the Nuclear Physics research group and got a week there.
