Key stage three (KS3) is the three years of schooling that today are usually referred to as years 7, 8 and 9 and the majority of children are, therefore, aged between 11 and 14. The curriculums of Northern Ireland and Scotland are slightly different and a few high schools and academies attempt to teach KS3 in two years instead of three, but broadly speaking “KS3” refers to the years between leaving junior school and commencing GCSE courses.

The National Curriculum describes fifteen subjects that should be taught during this period and one of the most important is science. At KS3, the curriculum specifies “Science” rather than specific sciences but physics is always at the heart of the syllabus because it is such a diverse subject and because it underlies so many of the other sciences. Physics also comes into the teaching of other specified subject areas such as Design & Technology.

The topics covered for KS3 physics normally include the following:
  • Scientific methods (hypothesis, prediction, planning, observation, measurement, evaluation, graphs & charts)
  • Space-related topics (days, years, seasons, tides, planets, the cosmic scale)
  • Energy & matter (boiling/freezing points, density, volume, mass, solar energy, atoms, elements, radiation)
  • Electromagnetism (magnetic materials, magnetic fields, electromagnets)
  • Electricity (generators, static, conductors and insulators, parallel/serial circuits, resistance, voltage, current)
  • Waves (soundwaves, light waves, colour, frequency and wavelength)
  • Forces (motion, mass, gravity, velocity, acceleration, friction, kinetic and latent energy, moments, pressure)

Danielle

Thank you for recommending such an amazing physics tutor for my son. We are now confident he will achieve the graded he needs to get into the uni of his choice, which is all down to the support we received from Principal Tutors and our wonderful tutor.

Jo

I cannot thank you enough, my daughter has improved in confidence so much after the help she receives form her chemistry and biology tutor.

Maya

An amazing science teacher, engaging and patient. My son adores her. Thank you!

GCSE Science

“I called Principal Tutors to find a science tutor for my daughter as she was struggling with understanding science at school. The tutor was really helpful and patient and helped my daughter with no just science topics but with exam technique, and revision schedules aswell as her maths. Really happy with the service overall.”

Although schools record assessments during these three years, many parents and some scholars are inclined to think of it as a respite between the “11+” or primary transition and the “more important” GCSE courses that follow (KS4). Any experienced tutor will tell you that KS3 should never be overlooked.

In many ways, KS3 is the most important stage of all because it is during this period that scholars realise their personal passions and aptitudes and develop plans for the future.

Their enthusiasm and engagement must be preserved and their confidence and optimism fostered if they are going to reach their potential.

It is the very diversity of physics that makes it such an important and popular subject. It also fosters logic and problem solving and lays foundations for a host of later careers, both academic and practical. The other side of that coin is that if the pupil (or teacher) misses a lesson or they are distracted for whatever reason, it leaves gaps in foundational knowledge that make later lessons harder to grasp, eventually undermining confidence and dulling enthusiasm. Fortunately, our online KS3 physics tutors offer the solution.

Many of our students are exceptionally bright and accomplished. Their parents seek out our online KS3 physics tutors simply because their child wants to know more and go into subjects that interest them more deeply. A bright student should never have to wait for their classmates to catch up – because that too leads to frustration, so we highly recommend our online KS3 physics tutors for gifted children too.

Our qualified tutors can assess the unique requirements of each student before commencing a lesson plan.

Your child will not be required to redo work they already know or dissuaded from deeper learning when they are ready.

We match your child with the most appropriate physics tutor available.

All of our physics tutors are qualified teachers with substantial teaching experience in mainstream classrooms and of course, focused on the teaching of physics. Your experienced tutor will work through any and all topics of the KS3 syllabus at the pace that best suits your child.

At age 11, most of today’s students are already accustomed to digital communications, computers and smartphones and easily adapt to digital sessions with our online KS3 physics tutors. Tutors keep in touch with students in a variety of ways but a key tool is our online “digital classroom” which includes an interactive whiteboard on which both the student and tutor can write. There are also file uploads, enjoyable online quizzes and the student may be encouraged to perform simple home experiments. Because materials are provided, no tedious note-taking is required. Sessions can be recorded at your request and can be replayed as often as they wish.
