Advanced Level Chemistry

Chemistry is a vital subject for those students wishing to pursue a career in the medical industry.  However the aims of this syllabus make Chemistry a versatile and useful subject for a wide range of applications, both everyday and career orientated.

Throughout the senior school programme we try to teach the subject as practically as possible. In the sixth form Chemistry is studied to AS and A2 level with Cambridge examinations at the end of the course.
