Welcome to the Biology Department
Biology at Millfield is very ‘hands-on’. We believe in doing as much practical-based study as possible. Pupils are encouraged to conduct experiments to learn new concepts and ideas by observation. The results and principles they develop are then used to help predict the outcomes of further experiments.
Our approach develops their ability to evaluate and relate to previously learned principles – a biologist’s foremost skill. Furthermore, by studying different types of organisms we hope to encourage a greater appreciation of the living world and its fragile nature.
Biology Courses at Millfield:
•GCSE Science (Biology component)
•GCSE Additional Science (Biology component)
All pupils study Biology to GCSE level.
The department features state of the art facilities with a vast array of preserved and living organisms. This combined with our exceptional teaching staff creates an exciting and illuminating environment.
