Welcome to the Science Department
William Edwards School serves the local community by providing high quality education. The local community is comprised of a diverse range of young people with diverse interests, aspirations and curriculum needs.
The Science Department at William Edwards strives to provide a curriculum that stretches the abilities of all students and prepares them for life in an increasingly scientific world.
An exciting, challenging and diverse curriculum is offered at Key Stage 3, covering all three of the core Science disciplines. At Key Stage 4 there are three pathways tailored to the strengths and interests of our students. We currently offer BTEC Applied Science, GCSE Core and Additional Science and the Triple Science programme. Triple science comprises of the three separate science disciplines, biology, Chemistry and Physics and students following this course are awarded three separate GCSE grades.
The Science Department recognises the importance of extra-curricular activities and we offer opportunities to all year groups. These include pre and post school revision sessions for GCSE students, a Science Club where students can perform additional scientific investigations, and the increasingly popular Reptile and Guinea Pig Clubs.
The Science department at William Edwards is staffed entirely by subject specialists.
