Biology provides you with great enjoyment and a respect for all living things. It will introduce you to the new advances being made including the influence of genes on our development, environmental issues and ethical and technical aspects of the subject. It is a practical subject which involves experiment, analysis and evaluation of experimental procedures.

Here are some of the topic areas we cover:
