        Overview

        Chemistry is one of the fundamental ways that we can learn about our environment, what makes things work and even life itself. It is a requirement for several important careers and useful for a great many more. Chemistry fits well with the other Science disciplines and with Maths. It is essential for a great many degrees in related subjects. Our aim is to develop students who have a detailed knowledge and understanding of the subject and who are able to think through problems in a scientific way. Chemistry is essentially a practical subject and we aim to let the students do as much practical investigation as possible.

        Minimum Entry Requirement

        Two Separate Science GCSEs at Grade 6 or above including Chemistry, or alternatively two Grade 6’s from the Combined Science GCSE. A GCSE Grade 6 or above in Maths is essential due to a minimum of 20% of the available marks being awarded for Maths at Level 2 standard or above. A GCSE Grade 6 or above in English is also required. It is advisable to be studying another Science A-Level and Maths alongside.
