In the Chemistry Department we teach Chemistry as a separate science for the first three years. During Year 9 the girls choose between studying Chemistry at GCSE as a separate science or Chemistry as part of the Core and Additional Science Course. In both cases the AQA specification is followed, generally at the Higher Level.

During the Years 12 and 13 (Lower and Upper Sixth) we also follow the AQA specification. It is usual for up to 60 girls to be studying ‘A’ Level Chemistry in the Sixth Form.

In their Upper Sixth year girls have an option of studying for and sitting the Advanced Extension paper in Chemistry and also entering the Chemistry Olympiad competition.  All teaching in the Chemistry department is carried out by expereinced and dedicated members of staff, supplemented by weekly, extra clinics.
