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.

Our son has been at King William’s College for two years and has settled in very well with the full support of the boarding staff and teachers, who have demonstrated great kindness and caring. The highly disciplined, but dynamic education system has helped our 15 year old son to adapt well and his confidence has noticeably improved in a short space of time. What's especially pleasing is that not only does the College have an excellent calibre of teaching staff and a strong academic curriculum, but we have been surprised and delighted to discover their excellent music achievements! With such great experience, our second son will also join KWC starting at Lower 5, to have a well rounded education. We cannot be more pleased with our decision to send our sons here all the way from Hong Kong!
