Biology at The Grange School

Course description

Biology is the study of living things and how they

work. Particular importance is placed on the study of

humans and how our knowledge of living things can

be used for the benefit of humankind. One of the most

important problems facing biologists at the moment

is how we can get the most out of our environment

without damaging it.

Biology is essentially a practical subject, both in the laboratory and in the

field, and great emphasis is placed on this during AS and A2 lessons at The

Grange. The practical work will involve observation of biological material

(both living and preserved), carrying out experimental investigations in the

laboratory and field studies in the local environment.

Entry requirements

Our standard academic entry requirements

into the Sixth Form at The Grange School are:

evidence of Grade A or A* in related subjects;

¬ These results should be accompanied with
