Biology is one of the most dynamic fields of study in terms of the practical and conceptual; stem cell therapy, the synthetic cell and memory augmentation are topics covered. The subject is equally diverse covering molecular biology to the biosphere. A qualification in Biology equips pupils with skills in literacy and numeracy, encourages social awareness and an ability to make connections between natural, social, economic, political and technological fields. Biologists work in the pharmaceutical industry, clinical and health professions, conservation and agroforestry.
One of the most popular A levels studied at our school, the majority of pupils who take Biology go on to a Biology-related degree at a Russell Group university. We follow the AQA course, where practical assessment is internal over the two years and three course papers are submitted for external evaluation.
