Chemistry is a highly successful subject throughout the school. It offers many opportunities for extracurricular engagements beginning in Year 7 with Chemistry Club right up to preparation lessons for the International Chemistry Olympiad in Year 13.
In Year 7, Chemistry is taught as part of the General Science lessons. During Years 8 and 9, all pupils are taught Chemistry. For GCSE, pupils can choose to study Chemistry as a single science or opt for the Dual Award. To take Chemistry in the 6th form pupils must have taken the single science course at GCSE.
