Course Description.

As technology evolves and as scientists ask harder questions, new species are discovered, new cells in the human body are identified and our understanding of how proteins regulate and control biological processes change. Through the medium of the internet information is being shared more rapidly and never before has the integrity of a scientist been more important, the ability to communicate findings to the non-scientist more essential and the task of the non-scientist to be able to interpret what is published in the media more vital.

At the University of Birmingham School we have structured our biology course to enable pupils to understand the importance of good character and to practice the virtue of integrity. Underpinning all our lessons is the development of three main skill areas: knowledge and understanding, scientific communication and data analysis. These skills are essential in allowing pupils to successfully progress through GCSE, A Level and beyond.

ShapeIn Year 12 and Year 13 we follow the OCR Biology A specification. Throughout the two years pupils study many aspects of biology in depth and get to use state of the art equipment to carry out regular practical work that is an integral part of the course. The skills and knowledge they develop prepares them well for studying biology and related degrees at university.
