Biology

Why Biology?

Biology develops key transferrable skills through the study of living organisms and their interactions with each other and their environment. Some of the highest skills shortages in Yorkshire are in STEM and our curriculum is designed to develop scientific methodology, awareness of  the advances of technology and recognition of the value of Biology in society so that students can go on to enjoy careers in fields such as health and medicine, engineering and research.
