Im studying physics foundation at Kent and I was wonedering if I can transfer to a better university like Southampton or Bath if I do well in the foundation even though my Alevel grades weren't that good (CC). Would this be possible?

Maybe, but nobody can tell you for certain. You need to email the universities you want to go to, give details of your foundation year / details of what you've studied etc and ask if they'd consider it for entry.

When it comes to foundation years and transfers, I find there is a better chance of an offer if you apply to universities who run their own foundation years. I guess they are more familiar with them and know what sort of material needed covered/grades to ask for. In my experience those universities without foundation years had a general trend to give me an offer/reject me based on my A-level grades.
Southampton told me they would expect to see exceptional grades during the foundation year, 70-80% and up. Most other universities such as Cardiff and can't remember where else asked for in and around 60%.
Email Southampton though and see, you did a different foundation year to me after all. But I suspect they will ask you for at least 70% overall.
