Science

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.

I loved King William’s College from the start. I made up my mind within an hour of our time there that I wanted my son to attend. You have to come to College to understand what makes it stand out from the rest. It is a place of genuinely caring and friendly people. Another aspect of College we love is its vast international community. Our son has made some great friends and as a result has come to appreciate and respect other cultures and traditions. Our son loves College. He loves the independence to make choices, the easy access he has to his tutors, the opportunity to make his own mistakes and learn from them, but most of all, he loves the fact that expert assistance is always a breath away.
