A Level

The Sixth Form follow the Edexcel A Level biology course using a context-based approach. The girls are given first-hand experience of science beyond the classroom visiting Malham Tarn Field Study Centre and they attend various lectures and exhibitions. They are also offered the opportunity to compete in the British Biology Olympiad.

Many of our pupils go on to pursue their interest at tertiary level, some reading medicine, biomedical sciences, veterinary science or related subjects.
