A Level Biology is taught through a combination of practical and theory sessions, using interactive materials to bring up-to-the minute information into lessons.

Students starting Year 1 of the A Level Biology course will be following the OCR Biology A linear specification.

The modules are:

Both years 1: Development of practical skills in biology
Year 1 2: Foundations in biology
3: Exchange and transport
4: Biodiversity, evolution and disease
Year 2 5: Communication, homeostasis and energy
6: Genetics, evolution and ecosystems

Students take progression exams at the end of Year 1, and subject to a suitable pass grade, can move into Year 2.

In addition to these courses, any student applying for Medicine, Veterinary Medicine or Dentistry has the opportunity to join ‘Medsoc’, which helps to prepare students for all aspects of their application.
