Key Stage 3 science textbooks

Hi all. What is the best or latest KS3 science textbook with accompanying teacher resources currently available on the market? My department is struggling with finding resources and fishing on the net can at times be unproductive and time- consuming. Thanks in advance.

Not a textbook, but try BEST Evidence Science Teaching.  These are collated evidence informed resources from the University of York Science Education Group.  They include curriculum maps, summaries of student misconceptions, hundreds of diagnostic questions and response activities all mapping onto learning progressions for each key concept.  

These are available for FREE on STEMLearning website. The direct link is

We really like activate. It also comes with Kerboodle. This provides online homework and loads of resources.
