If you want to improve your GCSE Science whether it’s to pursue a career in the health sector or as a teacher, we offer a great opportunity to build on the biological science you studied at school. You will explore the amazing human body, examine our environment including plants and pollution and discover the world of micro-organisms. GCSE Biology combines hands-on practical sessions with theory; it is the study of life itself and will allow you pursue a range of opportunities within science and beyond.
