Chemistry

If you enjoy a challenge, are interested in the world around you and have enjoyed GCSE chemistry, especially the practicals, then you should consider doing A level Chemistry.

The course builds on concepts introduced at GCSE and covers a broad range of topics, from the fundamentals of periodicity, structure and bonding through to their applications in the chemical industry.

The course has a strong practical emphasis and aims to develop problem-solving ability through discussion work and practical experience. 

There is no coursework component at either level. The exams include multiple choice sections, structured questions and extended response questions.

Visitors to St Gabriel's quickly recognise that this is no ordinary school. Parents are always impressed by the sense of purpose and enthusiasm of the talented, committed staff and the confidence of the extremely happy pupils. We offer girls the opportunity for a seamless journey from Nursery through to Sixth Form, with our boys leaving us at the age of 11 for their senior schools.
