Chemistry tutorials take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4pm in the department.
Year 9 Chemistry
Pupils complete the key ideas of the National Curriculum early in Year 9 before progressing onto GCSE topics. Again focusing on practical investigations, pupils study topics including ‘Atomic Structure and Bonding’, ‘The Periodic Table’ and ‘Introduction to Organic Chemistry’. Once again chemistry is only taught by subject specialists and is accompanied by a full set of course notes. Pupils have one double lesson per week and are given written prep each week for which they receive feedback the following lesson. End of topic tests take place during the term and there are examinations at the end of the Michaelmas and Trinity terms.
