Welcome to
the Biology Department!

We are a busy department of six teachers and two technicians. We teach the OCR Biology A-level and we are pleased to have large numbers of students taking biology in both Lower and Upper Sixth. We love our subject and hope to encourage our students to be inquisitive about the world around them.
