At Key Stage 5 we offer AQA A-level Biology (7402). This course is a two year A-level course. During the course students will study:

  • Biological molecules
  • Organisms exchange substances with their environment
  • Genetic information, variation and relationships between organisms
  • Energy transfers in and between organisms
  • Organisms respond to changes in their internal and external environments
  • Genetics, populations, evolution and ecosystems
  • The control of gene expression

Alongside this students will also be taught relevant practical skills and they will complete twelve required practical tasks to gain the accreditation in this area.

Students studying the A-level Biology course will be loaned a text book that is relevant to the subject matter they are covering. This will need to be brought to every lesson. There are also other books that would help them with the course as well as provide wider reading. The titles are listed below:
