Overview

Ever wondered about fermentation, worn a new hi-tech fibre, watched a firework display, needed medicine, used a plastic bottle, repaired a rusting implement? Then you have studied some Chemistry.

The ‘A’ level course consists of modules in Organic, Physical and Inorganic Chemistry with associated practical work relating to advances and problems associated with materials.

Students’ knowledge from theory lessons is complemented by practical experience. We use software and the internet to assist with revision, and students have a course textbook and plenty of access to past exam papers to guide them throughout. Students are expected to place a refundable deposit for a text book and buy a lab book.
