As a Chemistry department, we want to develop a passion and genuine interest for the subject amongst our pupils. We would hope that students are able to gain an excellent knowledge and understanding of Chemistry and appreciate its role in everyday life.
Importance is attached to the development of how Chemistry works in the world at large as well as in the laboratory. Revealing the molecular complexity of the world around us and its subtle relationships with ourselves and other living organisms gives us a deeper understanding of our place in the grand scheme of things. By studying models of atoms, the properties of simple compounds and the techniques used in chemical analysis, pupils will be able to apply these skills to solve problems in more complex areas of the subject.
