We believe all students should have a good grounding in the three Sciences, Biology, Chemistry and Physics, and each pupil studies these subjects to IGCSE level.

In the Sixth Form the International Baccalaureate allows students to choose from a range of Experimental Sciences in Group 4. As well as the traditional Biology, Chemistry and Physics we also offer Design and Technology, Environmental Systems and Societies and Sports Science. The practical approach continues at this level with practical studies forming a significant part of each syllabus.

In the Science department we pride ourselves on our results and on enthusing our students. Science holds the answers to many of the world’s problems and we like to think we play a part in that by supporting and inspiring students to go on to further study in diverse scientific fields in universities all over the world. Perhaps more important to us than this, is that students enjoy their studies in Science and leave King William’s College knowing a little bit more about the world we live in, than they did before.  

For IGCSE exams in 2021 students will instead sit the Edexcel IGCSE (9-1) in Biology, Chemistry and Physics.

Faced with the difficult choice of our daughters remaining at a perfectly good state school in the Isle of Man, we chose to send them to King William’s College to study the International Baccalaureate. The outcome in both cases was a resounding endorsement of our decision, since King William’s College operates and delivers at a different level.
