Wild City is a project for Year 5 students based in London primary schools. The project teaches about the importance of biodiversity and how it can be promoted and preserved. There are three rounds and learners have the opportunity to design a new green space for their school. The winning school will see their design brought to life.

Chemistry Club is for 11-14 year olds and aims to increase the accessibility of chemistry for young learners at the start of their secondary education. It is a great tool that promotes independent learning and offers additional subject knowledge and support in a fun and engaging way.

Chemistry Club

Join our Festivals of Chemistry 2022

Festivals support and enhance curriculum learning for 14-16 year olds. This year, there are three stages offered through a blended approach. Schools have the opportunity to engage with online content and to participate in a national competition to be launched in the summer.

A Level Awards

The Salters’ Institute’s A Level Awards for Year 13 students focus on the top 5/6 students in Biology, Chemistry and Physics throughout the UK. These are the students who achieve the highest marks in the following courses:

  • Salters Advanced Chemistry
  • Salters-Nuffield Advanced Biology
  • Salters Horners Advanced Physics

In 2022 we introduced a new award for Year 12 students. Students will be asked to identify a local or national societal issue and propose a science-focused solution that involves chemistry. This involves creating a poster with a supporting statement. Shortlisted candidates will have to present their poster at Salters’ Hall and will be awarded a cash prize.
