Chemistry at Carshalton High School for Girls

Course description

At A Level we teach the OCR course – A course which is an updated course designed to click with our present GCSE Additional Science and GCSE Chemistry. It stretches and challenges students with the use of its latest teacher and pupil resources and we feel that it will give pupils the opportunity to reach their full potential and take up a high profile university course.
Chemistry is central to the study of sciences at Advanced level and beyond. An A-level in Chemistry can broaden any combination of arts or humanities subjects. Continuing to A-level can lead to many different careers in the sciences. Chemistry is vital to the study of medicine, pharmacy and veterinary science. It combines well with physics, maths, and biology for a science course or other A-levels to make a broad based Advanced level course.
Chemistry is a logical subject where the understanding of basic concepts enables you to predict and explain more complex events. Chemists are the forefront of research into dealing with CO2 in the atmosphere and researching into drugs to combat illnesses such as Alzheimer’s and arthritis.
