Chemistry has become a vital part of our every day. It is found in the food you eat, clothes you wear, water you drink, anything made of plastic, medicines, air, cleaners, paint, furniture… you name it – chemistry was involved. Chemistry has been directly involved in increasing the quality of life as we know it today especially in the area of food production and energy resources.

The Chemistry Department believes that we learn science by doing. In this we guide our pupils using a scientific approach to learn the complexities of the world around us. The center of our teaching is experimenting and allowing students to investigate the world of science for themselves. We provide an environment where students at all levels can explore, discover, and learn chemistry for themselves. Both chemistry laboratories are equipped with 12 learner stations geared to promote pupils to do their own experiments
