Biology at Toot Hill School

Course description

The AS course looks at different types of biological organisms, how this variation is brought about and explores how they function and survive in their environment. Students will initially look at the structure of some human systems, the diseases that can affect them and ways in which the body’s defence mechanisms work. At the end of Year 12 students continuing with Biology at A2 level are invited on a field trip to Wales which provides the exciting opportunity to study organisms in their natural habitat of the sea shore. The A2 course extends and deepens knowledge of Biology and introduces students to the innovative and rapidly expanding areas of gene technology.
