The girls enjoy taking part in a number of national competitions including the Chemistry Olympiad and the Cambridge Chemistry Challenge for Lower Sixth students.

Chemistry remains a popular choice in Sixth Form, with around 40% of sixth form students opting to take the subject at A Level. The course is excellent preparation for the further study of scientific subjects.
