Welcome to Chemistry

Why study chemistry?     Chemistry helps you to understand the world around you and many aspects of our lives are influenced by this central science.   It is fundamental to the food we eat, medicines, fuels and modern materials.



The chemistry department at Inverness Royal Academy pride ourselves on offering our students an excellent education and our superb SQA results show that pupils are motivated to learn and achieve.

The department has 4 chemists:

  • Pauline Murdoch (PT)
  • Nicol Lumsden
  • David Munro
  • Gordon Piper (also a depute at the school)





Our Courses?          We have worked very hard to produce up-to-date materials for all the National courses which are all backed up with regular homeworks and assessments.   This allows you to check your understanding and allows us to monitor your progress and check that you are on target for achieving your full potential.

Do you need help?         The department has an open door policy and welcomes any pupil who needs any extra help and support. Come to our Monday after school revision group for our National 4 and 5 Chemistry pupils.
