Biology offers a wealth of opportunity to discover the elaborate processes that govern our Biochemical world. Students are given the opportunity to learn about molecules, diet, transport systems, health, cells, biodiversity and conservation, practical skills, the environment, microbiology and immunity, respiration, gene technology, communication and much more.

Biology at KS3 is a lot of fun. Students will learn about living organisms, the human body and organ systems, respiration and exchange systems, Health and disease, Ecosystems, Plants and the fascinating world of microorganisms. Like the other sciences there is much focus on practical science and exploring natural curiosities in a methodical and analytical way.


GCSE Biology explores the KS3 topics in more detail along with topics like Genetics, Biotechnology, and Coordination and Response to name a few. Here students will delve deeper into understanding all kinds of phenomena that exist in the natural world. Experiments are a key focus in the context of how science works, a part of Biology that students enjoy in particular. Students will go on to sit two papers as part of GCSE Biology.


A Level Biology is a popular choice of A Level as it allows students to explore a range of complex natural Phenomena that will add value to their understanding of the physical world they live in. Students will cover the following topics:

  • Molecules, Diet, Transport and Health
  • Cells, Development, Biodiversity and Conservation
  • Energy, Environment, Microbiology and Immunity
  • Respiration, Internal Environment, Coordination and Gene Technology
  • Practical skills in Biology I and II

  • Students sit six exams over two years, and go on to enjoy successful careers both within and without Biology; as Biology is a highly regarded analytical subject that lends itself to a host of careers.
