Curriculum Intent

Our Biology curriculum aims to foster a profound understanding of the living world, inspiring curiosity and critical thinking. Our intent is to empower students with comprehensive knowledge of cellular processes, genetics, ecology, and human biology.

Through engaging and interactive learning experiences, we aim to cultivate scientific enquiry skills, encouraging students to explore, experiment, and analyse biological phenomena. Our curriculum emphasises the interconnectedness of life, promoting an awareness of the impact of biological processes on the environment and society. By integrating practical investigations, real-world applications, and ethical considerations, we aim to develop not only a solid foundation in biological concepts but also a holistic appreciation for the diversity and complexity of life.

Our goal is to instil a lifelong fascination with biology, preparing students to contribute meaningfully to the scientific community and address global challenges with informed perspectives.


Key Stage 5 Curriculum

Course Code: A Level Biology 7402
Exam Board Specification:


Our Key Stage 5 Biology curriculum, aligned with the AQA A-level syllabus, is designed to provide an in-depth exploration of advanced biological concepts, preparing students for higher education and careers in the sciences. Our curriculum focuses on key areas of study:

  • Biological molecules
  • Cells
  • 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

Through rigorous theoretical study, advanced practical work, and critical analysis, our intent is to nurture independent thinking, research skills, and a passion for advancing biological knowledge.
