Biology at Ashford School is a highly interactive and investigative curriculum designed to provide challenge and intellectual stimulation.
Our problem-solving, practical and hands-on approach provides an experience that is enriched with context, allowing our students to engage directly with the topic at hand through experiments and practicals, therefore encouraging them to relate their experiences directly to their learning.
The School follows a Key Stage 3 curriculum that was designed by our experienced and expert Biology teachers, specifically with the transition into GCSE and A level Biology in mind. Students engage and learn about environmental biology, life cycles, human anatomy and the various human functions, to name yet a few.
Biological learning is encouraged as much outside of the classroom as it is within it, and therefore students are encouraged to participate in a range of field studies, museum trips and CREST awards. Our Year 12 students enjoy an annual week-long Biology field trip to Wales, and additional co-curricular clubs within School, such as Biological Art and Junior Science. The wildlife pond and lizard sanctuary are also key features of our Biology co-curriculum.
