Chemistry is a highly successful subject throughout the school. It offers many opportunities for extracurricular engagements from Year 7 to Year 13, beginning with Chemistry Club right up to preparing for the International Chemistry Olympiad. 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 Sixth Form, students must have taken the single science course at GCSE.
