Course description

Students following this course will build on concepts and skills that will have been developed in their GCSE Science specifications, presenting Biology as an exciting, relevant and challenging subject. There will be a structured and progressive approach to the essential principles, in contexts that students find interesting, stimulating the enthusiasm for Biology. There will be number of practical activities which will help develop practical skills alongside the understanding of concepts and principles. Students will be prepared with an appropriate and relevant foundation of knowledge and skill, either to become specialists in further study of Biology in Higher Education; or as non-specialists to become better informed citizens in the 21st century. The principles of 'How Science Works' permeate the whole course. Field work and trips will be undertaken to supplement the practical work.
