Chemistry

Welcome to the Chemistry Department

Chemistry has a daily impact on our lives.  In studying A Level Chemistry you will gain a scientific understanding of a wide range of issues to make informed decisions.

The new A Level course will build on concepts and skills that will have been developed at GCSE.  It presents Chemistry as an exciting, relevant and challenging subject.

The A Level course has five taught modules plus a module on development of practical skills. Students who can demonstrate competent practical skills throughout the course will be awarded The Practical Endorsement at the end of the course as part of their A Level qualification.

Who should consider Chemistry?

Those who are looking towards the wide range of chemistry-related higher education courses including medicine, chemistry, biochemistry, forensic science, environmental science, veterinary science, pharmacy, optometry, dentistry, nursing, physiotherapy and  food science.

Subjects that support Chemistry include Biology, Physics and Maths. However if Chemistry is your only science it will give you useful breadth.

Entrance requirements are a minimum of a grade BB in GCSE Science/Additional Science or grades BBB in Triple Science.  A minimum of a grade B in higher tier Maths is also required.
