Experience the difference



Welcome to the Biology department.

Biology is taught as a separate subject in the Senior School from years S2 – S6.

We aim to build on our pupils’ awe and natural curiosity about themselves, other living things and the natural world. The study of Biology deals with all levels, from the microscopic dimensions of cells and their molecules, right up to how animals and plants interact with their living and non-living environment.  

Our aim is raise all pupils’ awareness of the importance of Biology in their life as responsible citizens. We hope to produce pupils who don’t just know and understand some aspects of Biology, but can also confidently express their opinions on topical viewpoints and can contribute in a positive manner to discussions about aspects of Biology which impact on their lives. At the same time, we endeavour to excite and encourage those pupils who view the study of Biology as an important part of their future career aspirations.
