A level Biology is a course designed to develop understanding of a variety of key biological systems. This includes the components of cells, the molecules which make up living things and the reactions between them. It also compares the systems found in plants and animals which are necessary for life.

In the second year, a more integrated approach to considering biological systems is needed as we learn about how different parts of the body and different populations interact in the topics of communication and ecology.

Throughout the course we also develop a variety of investigative practical skills, including use of scientific equipment, presentation, analysis of data and evaluation of techniques.

Progression routes
More than 70% of our A level Biology students from last year are applying for biology-related university courses. We have excellent progression rates with students gaining places in biology, neuroscience, food and nutrition, and medical courses.
