The field of science is vast, but with our courses, students will have their thinking and understanding not just challenged but also enriched.
They will learn to question and to base their conjectures on science and facts, not on beliefs. Yet with all this, there will be a warmth and a humour that only tutors of the highest calibre can feel comfortable imparting.
Classes involve microscopy, anatomy and experimental work and this can be aided by statistical analysis, as in the study of the genetic distribution of certain human characteristics, such colour blindness. Practical laboratory work provides an ideal opportunity for you to learn about collating and interpreting data, recording and reporting your findings concisely and arriving at effective solutions to problems..
Chemisty gives understanding of the important issues that face your generation. Can you really evaluate climate change, genetic engineering, food and agricultural additives without the safety of medicine? Would you like to discover something no-one else has seen or touched before? With Chemistry, all this is possible and much more.EXPLORE CHEMISTRY

Mathematics is the oldest of the sciences and those who choose to study it as an A-level subject like its challenge, its clarity and its ability to reduce apparently complex problems into formulations from which analytical solutions can be obtained. Mathematics is all about logical analysis, deduction and calculation.GET INTO MATHS
– in banks and insurance companies, on the parchments of the architects who raised the Temple of Solomon and on the blueprints of the engineer who, with their calculus of chaos, master the winds. Here is a discipline of a hundred branches, fabulously rich, literally without limit in its sphere of application… here is a creation of the mind, both mystic and pragmatic in appeal.’
