Biology at Sandbach High School & Sixth Form College

Course description

Biology is the study of life. There are at least 1.9 million different species on the planet, with new organisms being identified all of the time. Many of the organisms require powerful microscopes to see them; there are often more bacteria in your mouth than the number of people living on the planet. Studying Biology will help you to understand what unites all of these remarkable life forms. It's a study about structure and division of labour, what fuels life processes and how a tiny molecule like DNA can result in such incredible variation in life.

Biology is a very popular subject in the sixth form and many of our students progress onto further biology-related studies in Higher Education. It combines well with many other subjects, including Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, Physical Education, Geography and Psychology.
