Chemistry Overview

At The Dixie, we understand the importance of experimental work - this hands on approach is at the heart of our courses and provides students with a broad range of practical skills. 

Students enjoy the opportunity to experience Chemistry outside the classroom with trips to Nottingham and Birmingham universities and visits to Leicester university to gain hands-on experience in the analysis of molecules by 'Spectroscopic Methods'

Lower and Upper Sixth Form students have the chance to be stretched academically through taking the Chemistry Olympiad and Cambridge Chemistry Challenge papers.
