Chemistry

Chemistry is all around us, constantly changing, and providing endless inspiration across all sections of the school.
 
Experimentation, analysis and problem-solving are some of the core skills developed through studying Chemistry; this is a hands-on subject which is firmly grounded in the real world, not just the lab!  Our laboratories are extremely well-equipped and allow our chemists to push themselves to truly explore theories.
