Chemistry - A level at Turton High School & Sixth Form College

Course description

Chemistry is an essential science that deals with the behaviour and development of materials and the atomic and molecular interpretation of the world around us. An understanding of Chemistry will allow us to tackle the important global issues of today, including the environment and energy. The subject also plays a vital role in the development of new technologies, bringing together fundamental aspects of fields such as Mathematics, Physics, Biology, Engineering and Geography.
