The Biology Department is highly successful, well resourced and has its own suite of laboratories, as well as resource areas and prep rooms. Each laboratory is equipped with wireless internet access and data projectors. At GCSE, both double-award and triple-science options are taught, and the subject is very popular at A Level.
