CHEMISTRY OVERVIEW

Our aim is to encourage girls to become independent learners through consideration of the results they obtain from practical activities and to ensure they have all the skills, both practical and theoretical, to ensure a smooth progression from L4 to A Level. Experiments are enjoyable and spark the students’ interest in this subject.

THE CHEMISTRY CURRICULUM

Our Science Centre is a state-of-the art building with seven laboratories; all are fully networked with computer points at each work space. A class set of laptops is available for accessing the internet and the VLE (virtual learning environment), for modelling, simulations and data-logging. Every lab has a data projector, with most also having Smart Boards. The building has a dedicated Sixth Form computer suite, a dark room and an integral greenhouse on the top floor.
