In the Sixth Form, high-quality practical work is used to underpin the theoretical teaching of the AQA Chemistry specification. Students complete double the number of practicals required by the examination board, using undergraduate-style practical handbooks and laboratory books. Students are guided into becoming independent learners by providing textbooks and online resources. This provides extensive deliberate practice, opportunities to consolidate understanding and challenge students beyond the specification. The department’s close links with the School of Chemistry at the University of Birmingham and the School of Education enable Sixth Formers to gain an insight into studying chemistry at university through evening lectures, visiting academics and tutoring sessions from undergraduate students.
