Mention the word “chemistry” and many immediately conjure up the traditional image of molecules, equations, acids and alkalis.

Our main aim is to make Chemistry exciting by igniting an explosion of interest in chemical concepts. It provides an exciting place to explore the boundaries of the subject and its relevance to everyday lives. Our curiosity-driven teaching integrates all areas of the discipline, applying chemical principles to a wide range of problems.


“Chemistry, unlike other sciences, sprang originally from delusions and superstitions, and was at its commencement exactly on a par with magic and astrology.” THOMAS THOMSON, 1733-1852
