Biology is taught to all students in the First to Fifth Form by specialist Biology teachers in five dedicated laboratories.
In First and Second Form the programme of study is aimed at developing scientific skills and knowledge through investigation and project work.
This is followed by Third to Fifth Form students working towards the EDEXCEL IGCSE Biology qualification.
A level Biology is a popular choice in the Sixth Form. Students follow the OCR course which incorporates both theory and practical examination papers. Visits to Chester Zoo and coastal sand dunes form an integral part of the A level curriculum.
Participation in the Society of Biology annual competition for GCSE and A level students is encouraged.
