Description

Chemistry is a methodical subject. It involves systematic learning of facts but also encourages students to analyse the facts, draw conclusions and make predictions. Chemistry is a practical subject and you will spend a significant amount of time in one of our modern purpose built and very well equipped laboratories. The practicals students carry out are based on the theory studied.
