A Level Biology

IMG_0181 IMG_0215 9625

Biology is best known as the study of life, but that doesn't just mean learning about cells and plants, molecules and physiology.

In A Level Biology at Bede's we help young people understand that there are certain principles that define every living thing, rules connect everything in the universe. We believe that learning about life means learning about yourself, decoding the world around you and delving into the past, the present and the future.

From organ systems to ecology, biochemistry to evolution, in the Biology department we guide and inspire our pupils to be curious, methodical and passionate about whatever they are doing.

Because Biology is all about life however, we believe that science lessons should allow young minds to live, breathe and engage practically with as much of the subject as is humanly possible.

As for what is humanly possible, we are still trying to find out. In terms of what we are doing at the moment, whether it is dissecting body parts, culturing bacteria or looking at life through a microscope, please take a tour around our wing of the website and let us know what you think about our work.

Either that or get in touch if you have questions. There's nothing we like more than questions!

  • Tilly Atherton, First Year

    It’s very special to be at a school where I feel like I’m listened to. I wouldn't change a thing about it.

  • Ana-Maria Bologan, Upper Sixth

    Until I came here I don’t think I had ever really experienced quiet and calm. It has been such a change in lifestyle.

  • Helen Clements, Lower Sixth

    It's strange when I think back. It sounds really cheesy, but I don't know how else to say it - I found myself here.
