Academic Enrichment & Extension Opportunities

  • Chemistry tutorials broaden their understanding of the chemical world. These take place fortnightly and research is the focus.
  • There are plans to arrange a visit to a Medicinal Chemistry facility. This will give the students a better understanding of careers in Chemistry, Biology and Biochemistry within an academic and research setting.
  • Many of the A-level Chemists are given the opportunity to impart their knowledge and expertise onto the GCSE students. This enables the GCSE students the chance to improve their GCSE understanding but also to ask questions about A-level Chemistry in a safe, honest environment.
