12 Level 1 Science credits



Biology is the scientific study of life.  It is a subject which explores the living world: its ecology, processes and relationships. 

Through this study, students gain an understanding of themselves, the planet, and how organisms survive and live together. They also develop essential scientific knowledge, methods and techniques. From here, students are able to analyse scientific information effectively and discuss the wide range of implications biology has on their world, including medical and environmental issues. Biology is a fascinating subject and is important for careers in a variety of areas including medicine, sports science, environmental science, marine biology and forensics.

Y12  topics include:

  •  Cell Biology: learning about the amazing complexity in the structure and function of cells.
  •  Genetics: examining the mechanisms behind inheritance and genetic variation.
  •  Anatomy and Physiology: exploring the powerful theory of evolution and its relationship with the structure and function in animals and plants.
