Biology is taught as a separate subject by specialist teachers from the Third Year upwards.
There is a strong emphasis on practical work throughout all year groups. Activities are undertaken both within the laboratory and outside in the school grounds. The Third Years spend a full day on the river and on Chertsey Meads investigating the ecology of the local environment and the Sixth Form develop their knowledge of ecosystems further at various sites on the Isle of Wight.
The A Level and GCSE syllabuses strongly reflect the ever changing face of Biology in the modern world. Biotechnology, genetic engineering and areas such as stem cell research are becoming the foundations of our teaching making Biology a very exciting and dynamic discipline.
