The ideal chemist should be an expert practitioner, a competent mathematician, and should have the ability to articulate chemical concepts through the written and spoken word. It is these skills that we aim to build up in our students during their study of chemistry at Loretto School not just in their academic careers but also in everyday life.

The department is made up of three full time members of staff and one part time, is well resourced and supported by two experienced technicians.
