“I really enjoy Chemistry because I find it challenging yet interesting.  The support and teaching is amazing, and the lessons are always enjoyable – even when the topic is difficult!”   Y13 student

The Chemistry A Level lends itself to being taught by two teachers, and this is how the subject is delivered at TGGS.  With one teacher students begin to unravel some of the complexities of atomic structure,  and with the other they learn to work out the quantities of reactants and products relevant to chemical changes. In both areas students’ practical skills are continually developed through regular experimental work, they support classwork by practising examination-style questions from the outset, and they are encouraged to explore areas of chemistry beyond the curriculum. 

Support for students begins early, and lunchtime help and one-to-one mentoring for individuals are available after the first few weeks.

Current Teaching Staff:
