What people say...

The content was outstanding at supporting Higher level students.

Bethan Atkins. Science teacher, Lutterworth College

As I am non-specialist teaching the new specification of AQA GCSE Chemistry for the first time this year, these resources have been invaluable to me. The presentations are thorough and well illustrated. The teacher guide and power point presentation leads you through the topics logically.
