Biology at Skegness Academy

Course description

The course involves a study of the main chemicals in the cell, providing an introduction to biochemistry and emphasising how all life on earth follows a similar pattern. The cell itself is studied in detail and then how cells are specialised to form the different organs in animals and plants. Genetics considers the laws governing inheritance and what we know about the structure of the gene, whilst evolution involves some of the great ideas in biology and provides a unifying principle for the subject. Both plant and human biology are covered in the course.
