In Year 12 students will choose to take the OCR A-level in Chemistry. The course is the OCR B (Salters) specification (H433).

This syllabus delivers Chemistry as a storyline and is context based rather than concept based. Students will study chemistry in a range of different contexts, conveying the excitement of contemporary chemistry. Ideas are introduced in a spiral way with topics introduced in an early part of the course reinforced later. This specification continues to place a particular emphasis on an investigational and problem-solving approach to practical work and is supported by extensive new materials developed by the University of York Science Education Group.
