Prince William School

KS3 Curriculum

A combined science course is taught in Years 7 and 8. The course is divided into a number of topics which closely follow the Exploring Science course by Pearson. The course seeks to ensure that pupils deepen their understanding and knowledge of Biology, Chemistry and Physics and also improve their skills of scientific enquiry. The course includes opportunities for pupils to engage in practical work, fieldwork, research, use of ICT, individual and group work, discussions, modelling and evaluation. Teachers also aim to make the teaching of science relevant to students’ lives.
