Exploring Science Working Scientifically

Our popular KS3 course gives you the tools to deliver a broad, balanced Key Stage 3 curriculum.

Exploring Science is ready to use across a 2 or 3-year Key Stage 3. It was developed by the same team as our GCSE (9–1) resources to give you a consistent, sequenced teaching and learning experience from 11–16.

This course will help you to:

  • inspire the next generation of scientists through real-world, practical science

  • develop a base of key skills from the start of year 7,  with a strong focus on the practical, mathematical and literacy skills needed at GCSE (9–1)

  • understand individual progress and identify intervention requirements, through classroom assessments and online markbooks.

Save time and customise the course to suit your school with our new, completely free Interactive Scheme of Work.

Plus, try these Key Stage 3 Science Lab Books to build a base of independent enquiry skills.
