Biology is the study of living organisms including their physiology and behaviour. It is a very popular subject at A level. We have two groups in both the Lower Sixth and the Upper Sixth. This is a desirable (though not absolutely required) subject for courses such as medicine. Many of our students do go on to study biological based courses at university, such as Biology, Zoology and Physiology.
Chemistry is the study of matter, its reactions and properties. It a popular subject at A level. We have two groups in both the Lower Sixth and the Upper Sixth. It is a required subject for most students wishing to embark on courses such as Chemistry, Medicine, Veterinary Science, Dentistry and Pharmacy. It is also useful for students going on to study Physics or any of the Biological Sciences.
Physics is an exciting and challenging subject, needing an inquiring mind and a logical approach. The rewards include a deeper understanding of the world around us and the development of analytical and practical skills sought by employers. Many of our students have gone on to study Physics or Engineering at top universities, including Oxford and Cambridge. Physics is also useful for those wanting to study other Sciences, Mathematics, even Music.
