Class teaching and practical lessons are complemented by a range of textbooks and other resources.
Students are encouraged to increase the depth of their subject knowledge through independent study workshops where they are given directed tasks to complete in peer groups.
In the sciences we value seeing applications of the theory we learn. To this end we invite in the Royal Society of Chemistry to host Spectroscopy School and we are planning university visits to see Chemistry in action.
There is a range of courses available at a number of universities across the UK including opportunities at a number of Russell Group universities. It is possible to complete dualhonour degrees with Chemistry e.g. Biochemistry or Geochemistry.
In terms of career options Chemistry is a highly regarded qualification. Studying the sciences takes discipline and commitment and is best suited to students who have good attention to detail, strong mathematical skills and a passion for learning.
Chemistry is a facilitating subject that provides pathways into medicine, healthcare, teaching, forensics, and engineering.
Grade 6/6 at GCSE
Whether you want to work in medicine and healthcare, pharmacy, forensics, engineering or even teach the sciences to others, Chemistry is a ‘door opening’ course. With a balance of practical and theory it takes the 3 main strands: organic, inorganic and physical chemistry to the next level.
