We are delighted to be able to offer both Chemistry and Physics A Levels in collaboration with the Weald of Kent Grammar School. Students who select to study one of these courses will need to travel to the Weald of Kent Grammar School for these lessons and will need to demonstrate excellent organisational skills and an aptitude for independent study.
Please note that, if a student wishes to study both courses, they should approach the Sixth Form Team who will support them in applying directly to the Weald of Kent (providing they meet the entry criteria).
Both Chemistry and Physics A Levels are 2-year courses and students will be required to study their course for the whole 2 years in order to accrue any certification.
The specification is divided into chemical topics, each containing different key concepts of Chemistry. Once the key features of a topic have been developed, applications are considered. While the teaching of practical skills may be integrated with the theoretical topics, they are assessed separately. This allows skills to be developed in a way suited to each individual. The course is divided up into several units.
