AS/A2: Chemistry at Stephenson Studio School
CHEMISTRY Chemistry lessons involve both theory and practical work. Students will use different study skills including: making notes, preparing information for presentations, revising for tests at the end of each topic, executing and writing up experiments. They will be expected to spend more time outside lessons consolidating the ideas and reading around them. The use of ICT is encouraged and some specialised software introduced. Students who have taken Chemistry at GCSE will extend their practical skills. All ‘A’ level subject studies are also delivered through projects. These enable the application of knowledge and skills to real life situations. The projects are commissioned by clients who will use the outcomes of the projects to support either their business or the local community.

Some sixth formers find chemistry an asset in applying for courses in another scientific field, eg. materials science, biochemistry, medicine and physiotherapy. Degree courses combining chemistry with languages, management, law and countless other disciplines are also available.
