“The love for all living creatures is the most noble attribute of man” Charles Darwin


Biology is the study of living things. It encompasses the investigation of plants and animals function and the requirements for healthy living.

The Biology department is extremely well resourced and is supported by highly qualified technicians. We aim to motivate and inspire pupils through a mixture of practical work, dissection and individual study.

The department regularly attends external lectures and through co-curricular activities, we encourage students to learn about the role and importance of biology in society and relate it to important global and contemporary issues.

Each year, a number of our pupils are entered for the British Biology Olympiad and Biology Challenge.
