Applications are open for our Sixth Form. We don't accept applications through Kent Choices - please visit our website to apply by following this link:

Chemistry is a challenging subject which provides students with a link between the world around them and the more abstract world of Physics. It sets out to explain how things work on a molecular level which can help us in terms of understanding processes for industry and in the treatment of disease. 


The content students will follow is very similar to that studied at GCSE. It will include topics such as Acids and Bases and Electrolysis and will go into greater detail. Some of these topics will be explored quantitatively using maths to help us solve problems. There are also topics on Bonding, Energetics, Kinetics, Equilibrium, Atomic Structure and Organic Chemistry. 

How will it be delivered?

There are three papers. These consist of a Multiple Choice paper, a longer answer paper and a third paper which contains the options and a section on data analysis. Students complete an Internally Assessed piece of coursework which counts for 20% of the final grade. 

Entry requirements

All candidates should have GCSE Grade 6 or above (or its equivalent) in English, Mathematics, at least one Science and one language where studied. Higher Level requirement is 7 in Chemistry. Where equivalence cannot be established the School will set appropriate I/GCSE papers to confirm that the applicant is capable of satisfying the academic profile required for the subjects to be studied and the IB Diploma Programme as a whole

Your next steps...

We have a strong history of students going on to study Medicine, Chemistry and Biochemically related degrees. The destinations are varied but include Oxford and Cambridge and are heavily weighted in favour of Russell Group universities.
