Biology A Level can be used as an entry qualification for a variety of courses at higher education.There are over 50 students on each of the currently offered A-Levels: A Level Biology attracts those that are interested in the living world and how organisms function and survive.The OCR course emphasises the way in which scientists work and explores many real-world applications of biology – past, present and future.The practical endorsement will be awarded to students who demonstrate practical competence during the completion of the 12 PAGs.Enrichment opportunities include a trip to CERN in Geneva for sixth form students and students have the opportunity to partake in the Engineering Education Scheme.The main scientific skills have been broadly grouped into 4 areas and are revisited multiple times through the course. Forces will have one of these skills embedded with the subject content.The key skill areas are: If you would like further details then please email Mr Verber.OCR Physics Advancing Physics Specification official page If you would like further details then please email Mr Dif In the final week of the summer term three World Challenge teams and six staff flew to San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica, via Mexico City for an outstanding month of mountain and jungle trekking, kayaking, community and environmental projects and R&R activities such as white-water rafting, zip-wiring, visiting a chocolate-making plantation, snorkelling and…KLB school is celebrating an excellent set of GCSE results that reflect the hard work and commitment put in by the year group as a whole.The headline GCSE figures are as follows: % entries resulting in grades 7/8/9 (grades A*/A) – 30% % students achieving grades 5 and above in Maths and English –…Students and staff at Katharine Lady Berkeley’s School are celebrating another extremely successful year.An integral part of the Year 13 course is fieldwork.The students are encouraged to attend a residential course during the summer term of year 12 in order to develop understanding of ecology, biodiversity and conservation, ecological investigation techniques, statistical analysis and data interpretation skills.
