Biology at The Grange School
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.
Our standard academic entry requirements
into the Sixth Form at The Grange School are:
¬ Students should secure Grade A or A* in the
four or five subjects to be studied at AS level;
¬ Where the subject is not offered at GCSE
(e.g. Philosophy), we would expect to see
evidence of Grade A or A* in related subjects;
¬ These results should be accompanied with
four other GCSEs at Grade B or above which
should include English and Mathematics if
they are not one of the chosen AS subjects;
¬ Any remaining GCSE examination results
should be at Grade C or above.
