Junior Science is studied by all First and Second Year pupils at King Edward’s and comprises of a selection of topics from Biology, Chemistry and Physics.

It is designed to provide a solid foundation for IGCSE separate sciences.

The 2nd years will have a curriculum trip to the Science Museum in London in the Summer term.

Junior Science Club

  • Heart disection
  • Imploding cans
  • Mirror eggs
  • Green eggs
