Understanding the living world is crucial in the 21st century and Biology is a fascinating and absorbing subject highly respected by employers and universities.
Our Biology course gives students a balanced and relevant grounding in modern biology, equipping them for a wide range of careers and courses, for example in medicine, veterinary science, agriculture and biotechnology. We strive to nurture a curiosity, interest and passion for the subject, to make complex concepts understandable and to support students in achieving their full potential.
Ultimately, study Biology because YOU ENJOY IT!
Students will study three components for the qualification: Biological processes (01), Biological diversity (02) and Unified Biology (03).
Content is split into six teaching modules:
Grade 6 in GCSE Biology or Combined Sciences and GCSE Maths 5.
What we expect of our biologists:
An enthusiastic interest in the subject and a commitment to conscientious study will bring success.
We are encouraging all students to purchase a course text, costing approximately £40, to support the course. Additional texts may be recommended on an individual basis to support their study. There may be financial help available for those in need.
It’s less than a week until our Careers and Degree Apprenticeship Fair! Gryphon students will have the opportunity to meet the employers during the day, but there is also an evening session (4.30-7.00pm) when you are welcome to come back with your parents, and it is also open to the public, so any young people in the area who want to find out more about career options are welcome!
