'Biology...is for life'
In Biology we aim to promote an enjoyment of and a respect for living organisms and the environment. We encourage pupil curiosity and develop a scientific approach to problem solving. We enable pupils to understand biological concepts and relate these to everyday life. Pupils are given the opportunity to work in groups as well as develop their skills in independent study.
