There is no better time to study Biology at A level! In our current unprecedented times of Covid 19, Biology is at the forefront of the news and in our daily lives. Having an in depth understanding of the processes underlying the science allows us to engage fully in a rapidly changing world. There is no doubt that Biology and Biology related fields will play a significant role in future employment opportunities whether in the healthcare and fitness professions, research and development, or exploring the connections between humans and our natural world.
Here at KGV we explore and learn about a wide range of topics that ensure lessons are varied, interesting and will provide you with the skills and knowledge to pursue Biology at degree level. You will begin your studies with cellular biology, membranes, DNA and biochemistry. We use these key concepts to study transport, gas exchange, nervous and endocrine systems in living organisms. Disease, immunity and genetics are given significant coverage as are the areas of ecosystems, energy and conservation studies. You will develop your communication and mathematical skills and along side the A level qualification, you will receive training in a wide variety of practical skills in Biology which allow you to achieve a separate practical endorsement qualification.
