The Biology Department at Charterhouse offers pupils the opportunity to study the fundamental principles of life.
Six dedicated and enthusiastic teaching staff and three technicians support and encourage pupils in this challenging and diverse subject.
Sixth Form subjects include Marine Biology, Endocrinology, Botany, Biochemistry and Dentistry. Yet our interest in biology extends far beyond the classroom with staff being keen bird and whale watchers as well as microbiology and biotechnology enthusiasts.
The Biology Department at Charterhouse provides dynamic, innovative and challenging lessons, supported with the use of modern teaching techniques. The Department offers extensive use of ICT resources and laboratories, all in a traditional environment adorned with the spoils of Old Carthusian hunting expeditions.
The challenging and diverse nature of the subject makes it valuable to any profession and instils a passion for life itself. A large proportion of pupils go on to study Biology or a related subject at university.
Full details of the curriculum are available in the Under School (Years 9-11) Curriculum and Sixth Form Curriculum sections.
