Biology AS/A Level at Ferndown Upper School Sixth Form

Environmental Science, Zoology, Marine Biology and Biomedical Science.
The students joining the course will have a high GCSE points score (46+) with at least a B grade at GCSE Biology, Maths and English Language. They will be inquisitive and keen to read about science and technology as well as having an enthusiastic approach
to natural sciences.
