Biology nurtures a passion for the scientific study of life and lays the groundwork for further study in courses like Biological Sciences, Dentistry and Pharmacology.
A-level Biology is fundamentally an experimental subject. The course provides numerous opportunities to use practical experiences to link theory to reality and equip students with the essential practical skills they need, such as industry field trips and the Year 12 field residential to Malham, Yorkshire. Students also enjoy participating in the national Biology Olympiad.
A popular subject at AKS, Biology is usually required for Dentistry, Forensic Science, Marine Miology, Medicine, Nursing, Optometry, Pharmacy, Physiotherapy, Veterinary Science and Zoology.
It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty; the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living.
Sir David Attenborough
It is not the strongest of the species that survives, not the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.
